Frequently Asked Questions About the Undergraduate Catalog


The Undergraduate Catalog is rather formidable looking. Why should I bother to read it?
While the catalog may not look flashy, it contains information critical to your academic success at UF.
I am a freshman. Where should I start?
You might begin by examining the tracks for your major or majors you find of interest. Each major has a suggested eight-semester plan that will enable you
to graduate in four years. The Table of Contents will tell you where to find an index of all majors.
Where can Ifind information on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate course equivalencies?
Look in the Academic Advising section for course equivalencies. If you want to know what courses to take next, look at the placement charts as well.
What do I need to know about the Gordon Rule communication and computation requirement?
Refer to the Academic Advising section. Also remember that Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate credit count toward Gordon Rule.
How do Ifind out about my SAT II scores?
Consult the charts in the Academic Advising or Admissions sections or refer to the Schedule of Courses.
What are the general education requirements of the university?
Consult the Academic Advising section for a description of UF's general education requirement.
I'm Pre-Med or Pre-Law. Where can Ifind information that would help me pursue my interests in medicine or law?
Refer to the Academic Advising section for pre-professional studies information and then consult an adviser in the Office of Health and Legal Professions
Advising in 100 AAC.
What about transfer credit?
Refer to the transfer credit policy in the Academic Regulations section.
Is there somewhere I can find information about graduate school?
Yes, you can get a copy of the Graduate Catalog or you can discuss graduate education with an academic adviser or a faculty member in your major.
What is the University's computer requirement?
Each college has its own set of requirements so you should check in the information section of the college to which your major belongs.
I am interested in overseas study. Where can Ifind information on the programs available?
Again, refer to the Academic Advising section or go to the Overseas Studies Office in 123 Grinter Hall.
Is there any other section I should know about?
The Academic Regulations section contains information you will need to know. In addition, you should familiarize yourself with the college section to
which your major belongs.

University of Florida Purpose, Mission and Goals


Institutional Purpose
The University of Florida is a public, land-
grant research university, one of the most
comprehensive in the United States and it en-
compasses virtually all academic and profes-
sional disciplines. It is the oldest and largest of
Florida's ten universities and is a member of the
Association of American Universities (AAU). Its
faculty and staff are dedicated to the common
pursuit of the university's threefold mission:
education, research and service.
Teaching-undergraduate and graduate
through the doctorate-is the fundamental pur-
pose of the university. Research and scholarship
are integral to the education process and to
expanding humankind's understanding of the
natural world, the mind and the senses. Service
is the university's obligation to share the bene-
fits of its knowledge for the public good.
These three interlocking elements span all of
the university's academic disciplines and multi-
disciplinary centers and represent the univer-
sity's obligation to lead and serve the needs of
the nation, all of Florida's citizens, and the pub-
lic and private educational systems of Florida by
pursuing and disseminating new knowledge
while building upon the past.
The University of Florida is committed to
providing knowledge, benefits and services
with quality and effectiveness. It aspires to fur-
ther national and international recognition for
its initiatives and achievement in promoting
human values and improving the quality of life.


Mission and Goals

The university belongs to an ancient tradi-
tion of great universities. We participate in an
elaborate conversation between scholars and
students that extends over space and time,
linking the experiences of Western Europe with
the traditions and histories of all cultures, that
explores the limits of the physical and biological
universes, and that nurtures and prepares gen-
erations of educated people to address the
problems of our societies. While this university
recognizes no limits on its intellectual bounda-
ries, and our faculty and students remain free to
teach and learn, to explore wherever the mind
and imagination lead, we live in a world with
limits and restraints. Out of the conflict between
intellectual aspirations and the limitations of
environment comes the definition of the univer-
sity's goals.
Teaching. American colleges and universi-
ties share the fundamental educational mission
of teaching students. The undergraduate experi-
ence, based in the arts and sciences, remains
at the core of higher education in America. The
formation of educated people, the transforma-
tion of mind through learning and the launch-
ing of a lifetime of intellectual growth: these


goals remain central to every university. This
undergraduate foundation of American higher
education has grown more complex as the
knowledge we teach has grown more complex.
Where once we had a single track through the
arts and sciences leading to a degree, we now
have multiple tracks leading to many degrees in
arts and sciences as well as in a variety of pro-
fessional schools. Yet even with many degrees,
American university undergraduate education
still rests on the fundamental knowledge of the
liberal arts and sciences.
In our academic world we recognize two
rather imprecisely defined categories of higher
education: colleges and universities. The tradi-
tional American college specializes in a carefully
crafted four-year undergraduate program, gen-
erally focused on the arts and sciences. Univer-
sities extend the range of this undergraduate
education to include advanced or graduate
study leading to the Ph.D. Most American uni-
versities also include a variety of undergraduate
and graduate professional programs and mas-
ter's degree programs. The University of Florida
shares these traditions. As an American univer-
sity, we have a major commitment to under-
graduate education as the foundation of our
academic organization, and we pursue graduate
education for the Ph.D. and advanced degrees
in professional fields.
We are, in addition, a major, public, com-
prehensive, land-grant, research university.
Each of these adjectives defines one characteris-
tic, and, through frequent repetition, this de-
scription takes on the style of ritual incantation:
rhythmic, reverent and infrequently examined.
What, then, does each of these key words mean?
Major. Here is one of our most important as-
pirations. We will be, we must be and we are a
major university. We define ourselves in com-
parison to the best universities we can find. We
do not need to be the absolute best, but we must
be among the best universities in the world.
Exact ranking of the best universities is a
meaningless exercise, but most of us can name
62 great universities. By whatever indicator of
quality we choose, our university should fall
into this group. If we define a group of univer-
sities that shares our adjectives (major, public,
comprehensive, land-grant, research), then we
fall into a group of perhaps the best 15 in this
country.
Public. We exist thanks to the commitment
and investment of the people of the state of
Florida. Generations of tax dollars constructed
the facilities we enjoy and have paid the major
portion of our operating budget. The graduates
of this institution, educated with tax dollars, pro-
vide the majority of our private funding. Our
state legislators created the conditions that per-
mit our faculty to educate our students, pursue
their research, conduct their clinical practice and
serve their statewide constituencies. We exist,
then, within the public sector, responsible and


responsive to the needs of the citizens of our
state. The obligations we assume as a public uni-
versity determine many of our characteristics.
We have many more undergraduates than
graduates; we respond quickly to the needs of
the state's economy; we accommodate complex
linkages with other state universities, commu-
nity colleges and K-12 public and private insti-
tutions; and we operate in cooperative symbio-
sis with our state's media. We also experience
close interaction with the political process. Pri-
vate universities, which have a different profile,
do not respond in the same ways to these issues.
As a public university, we must maintain close,
continuous and effective communication with
our many publics.
Comprehensive. This adjective recognizes
the universal reach of our pursuit of knowledge.
As a matter of principle, we exclude no field
from our purview. We believe that our ap-
proach to knowledge and learning, to under-
standing and wisdom, requires us to be ready to
examine any field, cultivate any discipline and
explore any topic. Resource limits, human or
financial, may constrain us from cultivating one
or another academic subspecialty, but we ac-
cept, in principle, no limit on our field of view.
Even when we struggle with budget problems
and must reduce a program or miss an intellec-
tual opportunity, we do so only to meet the
practical constraints of our current environment.
We never relinquish commitment to the holistic
pursuit of knowledge.
Land-grant. Florida belongs to the set of
American universities whose mandate includes
a commitment to the development and trans-
mission of practical knowledge. As one of the
land-grant universities identified by the Morrill
Act of 1862, Florida has a special focus on agri-
culture and engineering and a mandate to de-
liver the practical benefits of university knowl-
edge to every county in the state. In our univer-
sity, the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences and the College of Engineering respond to
this definition most obviously; but over time,
the entire university has come to recognize its
commitment to translating the benefits of ab-
stract and theoretical knowledge into the mar-
ketplace to sustain the economic growth that
supports us all.
This commitment permeates the institutional
culture and defines us as one of 72 such institu-
tions in America. The land-grant university is,
of course, a peculiarly American invention and
captures one of the powerful cultural beliefs of
our country: that knowledge passes the test of
utility by remaining vitally connected to indus-
try and commerce.
Research. Research defines this university. Our
faculty dedicate themselves not only to the bed-
rock function of education, not only to the land-
grant function of service, but equally to the
essential activity of research.








By research we mean the effort to expand
our understanding of the natural world, the
world of the mind and the world of the senses.
We define research to include the theoretical
abstractions of the mathematician, the experi-
mental discoveries of the geneticist, the insights
of the semiotician, the re-creations of the histo-
rian or the analysis of the anthropologist. We
define research to capture the business profes-
sor's analysis of economic organization, the
architect's design and the musician's interpreta-
tion or the artist's special vision. Research by
agronomists improves crops, and research by
engineers enhances materials. Medical and
clinical research cures and prevents diseases.
The list of research fields continues as endlessly
as the intellectual concerns of our faculty and
the academic vision of our colleges.
We must publish university research, what-
ever the field. The musician who never per-
forms, the scientist whose work never appears
for review by colleagues, the historian whose
note cards never become a book may have ac-
complished much, but their accomplishments
remain incomplete. When we say research, we
mean research and creative activity that con-
tribute to the international public conversation
about the advancement of knowledge.


History
Florida's oldest and largest university, the
University of Florida traces its beginnings to
1853 when the state-funded East Florida Semi-
nary acquired the private Kingsbury Academy
in Ocala. After the Civil War, the seminary was
moved to Gainesville. It was consolidated with
the state's land-grant Florida Agricultural Col-
lege, then in Lake City, to become the University
of Florida in 1906. Until 1947, UF enrolled men
only and was one of only three state universi-
ties. The others were Florida State College for
Women (now FSU) and Florida A&M. In 1947,
the student body numbered 8,177 men and 601
women. Today UF is the ninth largest university
in the nation.


Government of the University
Direct supervision over the university, its
policies and affairs is vested in the Board of
Regents, a body composed of 12 citizens who
are appointed by the governor for six-year
terms, one student appointed for one year, and
the State Commissioner of Education. Univer-
sity affairs are administered by the president
with the advice and assistance of university
administration, the University Senate and vari-
ous committees elected by the Senate and ap-
pointed by the president.

Students
University of Florida students-numbering
more than 43,000 in Fall 1999-come from more
than 100 countries (2,6000 international stu-
dents), all 50 states, and every one of the 67


INTRODUCTION


counties in Florida. The ratio of men to women
is 49/51. Seventy-three percent of UF students
are undergraduates (31,633), 20% are graduate
students (8,822) and 7% (2,927) are in the profes-
sional programs of dentistry, law, medicine,
pharmacy and veterinary medicine.
Approximately 2,830 African-American stu-
dents, 4,111 Hispanic students and 2,613 Asian-
American students attend UF. Over ninety per-
cent of entering freshmen rank above the na-
tional mean of scores on standard entrance ex-
ams taken by college-bound students. UF con-
sistently ranks among the top five public uni-
versities in the nation in the number of enrolled
National Merit Scholars, Achievement Scholars,
International Baccalaureate graduates and Ad-
vanced Placement score recipients.

Faculty
The university has approximately 4,000 dis-
tinguished faculty members with outstanding
reputations for teaching, research and service.
The Teaching Improvement Program (TIP), a
nationally recognized program to enhance and
reward undergraduate teaching, has provided a
major emphasis on the quality of instruction.
The newly developed Professorial Excellence
Program (PEP) rewards faculty based on their
accomplishments and continuing productivity
since promotion to the rank of professor, in-
cluding excellence and high merit in scholarship
or creative achievement; teaching, service and
extension. The faculty attracted $296 million in
research and training grants in 1998-99.
UF currently has 54 eminent scholar chairs,
positions funded at more than $1 million each to
attract nationally and internationally recognized
scholars. A variety of other endowed professor-
ships helps attract prominent faculty. More than
two dozen faculty are members of the National
Academies of Science and/or Engineering, the
Institute of Medicine or a counterpart in another
nation. Also, in a national ranking of total Ful-
bright Awards for 1996-97, Florida stands 12th
among all universities, with six visiting scholars
and nine American scholars.
A very small sampling of honored faculty
includes: a Nobel Laureate, Pulitzer Prize win-
ners in editorial writing and poetry, inventors of
Gatorade and Bioglass (a man-made material
that bonds with human tissue), one of the four
charter members of the Solar Hall of Fame, and
an art faculty with 80 percent of its members in
Who's Who in American Art.

Programs
The University of Florida is among the na-
tion's 88 leading research universities as catego-
rized in 1994 by the Carnegie Commission on
Higher Education. UF is one of 62 members of
the Association of American Universities, the
nation's most prestigious higher education or-
ganization. The university is accredited by the
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools -
Commission on Colleges to award the degrees
of bachelor, master, specialist and engineer, as


well as doctoral and professional degrees. UF is
one of the nation's top three universities offer-
ing more academic programs on a single cam-
pus than any of the nation's other universities. It
has 21 colleges and schools and more than 100
interdisciplinary research and education centers,
bureaus, and institutes. Almost 100 under-
graduate degree programs are offered. The
Graduate School coordinates more than 200
graduate programs throughout the university's
colleges and schools. Professional postbaccalau-
reate degrees are offered in dentistry, law,
medicine, pharmacy and veterinary medicine.
Last year, more than 32,000 people took ad-
vantage of the many university-sponsored op-
portunities made available through the Division
of Continuing Education. More than 25,000
people participated in non-credit conferences,
workshops, institutes, and seminars. And more
than 7,500 students enrolled in Independent
Study by Correspondence courses, both credit
and non-credit.

Semester System
UF operates on a semester system. The aca-
demic year begins and ends in August. There
are two semesters averaging 15 weeks of in-
struction, plus a week of final examinations and
two six-week summer terms. Semesters begin in
August, January, and May, with summer term
offered as a whole as Term C, or in two sessions
as half terms, with Term A beginning in May
and Term B beginning in June.

Facilities
On 2,000 acres, most of it within the limits of
a 100,000-population urban area, the university
operates out of 917 buildings, 160 of them
equipped with classrooms and laboratories.
Facilities are valued at approximately $803 mil-
lion. Notable among these are the new Brain
Institute, the new physics building, University
Art Gallery, a microkelvin laboratory capable of
producing some of the coldest temperatures in
the universe, a 100-kilowatt training and re-
search nuclear reactor, the second largest aca-
demic computing center in the South, and a self-
contained intensive-care hyperbaric chamber for
treating near-drowning victims.
The Florida Museum of Natural History is
the largest natural history/anthropology mu-
seum in the Southeast, and one of the top 10 in
the nation. Its research collections contain nearly
6.5 million specimens.
The Samuel P. Ham Museum of Art, with
18,000 square feet of exhibit space, is one of the
largest museums in the Southeast. The Center
for the Performing Arts attracts world-class
symphony orchestras, Broadway plays, opera,
and large-scale ballet productions to
Gainesville.
The Stephen C. O'Connell Center and the J.
Wayne Reitz Union provide space for a myriad
of student and faculty activities. One thousand
persons can participate simultaneously in eight
different recreational activities in the O'Connell
ix






UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG


Center, which is home to the Gator basketball,
volleyball, swimming and gymnastics teams.
More than 20,000 use the student union daily for
dining, meeting, bowling, pool and other
games, arts and crafts, music listening and TV
viewing.

Campus Safety and Security
The University of Florida is an open campus
and can rightly be considered a city within a
city. As such, the campus is not immune to the
same security issues that affect other parts of the
Gainesville community.
The university recognizes that it must de-
velop and maintain a safe and secure environ-
ment for its students, faculty and staff.
The university has the utmost concern for
the safety of each student, and it strives to give
each student maximum freedom. With this
freedom, however, comes the responsibility to
exercise personal safety.
No community's security plan can attain
maximum effectiveness unless everyone in the
community contributes to making it work.
Safety and security are personal and shared
responsibilities. Only by accepting this respon-
sibility can members of the university commu-
nity maintain a safe and secure campus envi-
ronment.
The University Police Department has close
to 100 sworn officers, with the addition of a
dozen new officers since 1990. UF also has in-
stituted a voluntary apartment safety program,
in cooperation with local law enforcement, to
advise students of those apartment complexes
that have been inspected by police for safety.

Standard of Ethical Conduct
Honesty, integrity and caring are essential
qualities of an educational institution, and the
concern for values and ethics is important to the
whole educational experience. Individual stu-
dents, faculty and staff members, as well as the
university's formal organizations, must assume
responsibility for these qualities. The concern
for values and ethics should be expressed in
classes, seminars, laboratories and, in fact, in all
aspects of university life. By definition, the uni-
versity community includes members of the
faculty, staff and administration as well as stu-
dents.
Education at the University of Florida is not
an ethically neutral experience. The university
stands for, and seeks to inculcate, high stan-
dards. Moreover, the concern for values goes
well beyond the observance of rules.
A university is a place where self-
expression, voicing disagreement and chal-
lenging outmoded customs and beliefs are
prized and honored. However, all such expres-
sions need to be civil, manifesting respect for
others.
As a major sector in the community, stu-
dents are expected to follow the university's
rules and regulations that, by design, promote
an atmosphere of learning. Faculty, staff and


administration are expected to provide encour-
agement, leadership and example.
While the university seeks to educate and
encourage, it also must restrict behavior that
adversely affects others. The Standard of Ethical
Conduct summarizes what is expected of the
members of the university community.
Academic Honesty
The university requires all members of its
community to be honest in all endeavors. A
fundamental principle is that the whole process
of learning and pursuit of knowledge are di-
minished by cheating, plagiarism and other acts
of academic dishonesty. In addition, every dis-
honest act in the academic environment affects
other students adversely, from the skewing of
the grading curve to giving unfair advantage for
honors or for professional or graduate school
admission. Therefore, the university will take
severe action against dishonest students. Simi-
larly, measures will be taken against faculty,
staff and administrators who practice dishonest
or demeaning behavior.
* Student Responsibility. Students should
report any condition that facilitates dishon-
esty to the instructor, department chair, col-
lege dean or Student Honor Court.
* Faculty Responsibility. Faculty members
have a duty to promote honest behavior and
to avoid practices and environments that
foster cheating in their classes. Teachers
should encourage students to bring negative
conditions or incidents of dishonesty to their
attention. In their own work, teachers should
practice the same high standards they expect
from their students.
* Administration Responsibility. As highly
visible members of our academic commu-
nity, administrators should be ever vigilant
to promote academic honesty and conduct
their lives in an ethically exemplary manner.
Alcohol and Drugs
The use of alcohol and other drugs can have
a negative impact on judgments and reaction,
health and safety, and may lead to legal compli-
cations as well.
* The University's Role. The university's
principal role is to engage in education that
leads to high standards and respectful con-
duct. When those are compromised, it will
take disciplinary action against organiza-
tions and individuals violating either the law
or the reasonable use of alcohol. It also must
provide help for students who are alcohol-
dependent. The university will deal severely
with students convicted of the illegal posses-
sion, use, or sale of drugs.
* What the University Community Can Do to
Prevent Alcohol Abuse and Drug Use. Stu-
dents can help control substance abuse by
declining to use or condone the use of drugs
and by insisting that organizations and indi-
viduals use alcohol within the bounds of the
law and reasonable conduct. Students
should make an effort to prevent persons


who have abused alcohol or used drugs
from harming themselves or others, espe-
cially in driving a motor vehicle. They
should encourage those needing profes-
sional help to seek it. The same standards
and regulations apply equally to faculty,
staff and administration.
Relations Between People and Groups
One of the major benefits of higher educa-
tion and membership in the university commu-
nity is greater knowledge of and respect for
other groups, religious, racial and cultural. In-
deed, genuine appreciation for individual dif-
ferences and cultural diversity is essential to the
environment of learning.
Another major aspect of university life in-
volves sexual relationships. Sexual attitudes or
actions that are intimidating, harassing, coercive
or abusive, or that invade the right to privacy of
the individual, are not acceptable. Organizations
or individuals that adversely upset the balance
of communal living will be subject to university
disciplinary action. Only in an atmosphere of
equality and respect can all members of the
university community grow.
Service to Others
An important outcome of a University of
Florida education should be a commitment to
serving other people. This sense of service
should be encouraged throughout the institu-
tion by faculty, administration, staff and stu-
dents. Through experience in helping individu-
als and the community, students can put into
practice the values they learn in the classroom.
Education at the University of Florida is not
an ethically neutral experience. The entire uni-
versity community should dedicate itself to
realizing the vision that a center of learning is a
beacon that, by directing itself to the highest
values, guides and encourages society to do the
same.

educational costs and what individual students
can pay toward these costs. The university
evaluates financial need for UF students from
data provided by the federal need-analysis
processor, after the processor has analyzed the
information students and their families have
supplied on the student's Free Application for
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).






STUDENT INFORMATION
r 1


What is Financial Aid? Financial aid is money
provided to students and their families as either
gift aid or self-help to help pay college costs.
Gift aid is free money such as scholarships and
grants. Students do not have to repay these
awards. Self-help programs include loans and
employment and are named "self-help" because
students must repay loans and work for money
awarded through employment programs.
Awards consist of scholarships, grants, loans,
and/or work, singly or as a package.
When to Apply: Applications are available
January 1 each year. Students are considered for
aid according to the date their aid file is com-
plete. A few programs such as the Federal Pell
Grant program, Federal Direct Stafford/Ford
Loans and OPS employment are open for appli-
cation throughout the year (refer to important
deadlines below).
Although SFA cannot award financial aid to
students until they have been admitted to the
university, students should apply for aid as
soon as possible after January 1 each year.
How to Apply: Financial aid applications are
not sent automatically when students apply for
admission. Students must obtain a Free Applica-
tion for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and a UF
Gator Aid Application Guide from any Florida
community college or high school guidance
office. Students can also request these forms
from the Office for Student Financial Affairs,
Box 114025, Gainesville, FL 32611-4025, or by
calling (352) 392-1275. FAFSA's are also avail-
able directly from the federal government by
calling toll-free: 1-800-433-3243. Students can
now apply electronically as well. FAFSA on the
web is an on-line application available as a link
through our web-site: www.ufsa.ufl.edu/sfa.
Students must complete and submit a Free
Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the
Federal Student Aid Programs processor at the
address indicated on the form. Your financial
data must reach us from the processor no later
than March 15. Allow a minimum of three
weeks for processing. Financial aid transcripts
from all previously attended institutions cover-
ing all periods of attendance are required for
transfer students. Students should provide ac-
curate financial figures taken directly from
completed 1999 income tax forms. To comply
with federal financial aid requirements, the
Office for Student Financial Affairs must verify
all information. Incorrect information or incor-
rectly completed application forms can cause
aid to be delayed or denied. Students should
keep copies of all their financial aid documents.
Confidentiality of Student Records: The uni-
versity ensures the confidentiality of student
records in accordance with State University
System statutes and the Family Education
Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, known as the
Buckley Amendment. Students' family financial
information and the type and amount of their
aid are held in confidence. Information is re-
leased only with the student's written consent.


Important Deadlines: Financial aid applications
should be completed and sent to the appropriate
processor as soon as possible after January 1.
March 15 is the deadline for Student Financial
Affairs to receive your information from the
need analysis agency. Students who wish to be
considered for campus-based and institutional
programs (such as Federal Work-Study, Federal
Perkins Loans, Turner Grants and University
Loans) must be sure to apply early, since these
funds are limited.
Ford Federal Direct Loan Program dead-
lines are set by semester. The fall deadline for
applying for Federal Direct Stafford/Ford, Fed-
eral Direct Unsubsidized Stafford/Ford, and
Federal Direct PLUS loans is October 15. Indi-
vidual colleges within the university and pri-
vate organizations have their own deadlines for
applying for aid.
Satellite Office: SFA has satellite offices located
at: College of Dentistry: D3-#17A Health Science
Center, (352) 846-1384; Colleges of Health Pro-
fessions, Nursing, Pharmacy and Veterinary
Medicine, CG-96 Health Science Center, (352)

Health Science Center, (352) 392-7800.
Types of Aid: Scholarships are awarded based
on academic performance and financial need.
SFA awards a limited number of scholarships to
academically outstanding undergraduates with
documented need. Most academic scholarships
are awarded through the Office of Admissions.
Individual colleges also offer scholarships. For
information, students should contact their col-
lege. Many private donors offer scholarships;
students should contact civic clubs, service
organizations, private corporations and other
resources in their home communities.
Grants are awarded to undergraduates with
financial need and range from $100 to $4,000.
The two largest grant programs are the Federal
Pell Grant and the Florida Student Assistance
Grant.
The following undergraduate loan programs
are available at this university: Federal Direct
Stafford/Ford Loans, Federal Direct Unsubsi-
dized Stafford/Ford Loans, UF Institutional
Loans and Federal Perkins Loans. Parents of
dependent undergraduates can also take out
educational loans through the Federal Direct
PLUS Loan program. These programs offer
long-term, low-interest loans that must be re-
paid when the borrower graduates, withdraws
or drops to less than half-time enrollment.
Loans range upward from $500 per aca-
demic year at low annual interest rates. The
amount of each loan except for Federal Direct
Unsubsidized Stafford Loans and Federal Direct
PLUS loans is based on financial need as deter-
mined from information the borrower provides
on the FAFSA.
The university also has a Short-Term Loan
program to help students meet emergency fi-
nancial needs related to educational expenses.
Students may borrow up to $400 or the amount
of in-state tuition if they have an acceptable


repayment source. Interest is one percent per
month and these loans must be repaid by the
first day of the last month in the semester in
which the money is borrowed.
Part-time employment through the univer-
sity is offered to about 7,500 students each year.
Students normally work 15-20 hours a week,
four or five days a week and earn at least mini-
mum wage. Most departments arrange work
hours around the students' academic schedules.
Student Employment Office: The SFA Student
Employment Office is a clearinghouse for part-
time employment and coordinates three em-
ployment programs: Federal Work Study, (OPS)
and off-campus jobs. Work Study is based on
need and is awarded to students as part of their
overall financial aid package. OPS jobs are state-
funded and are not based on need. Student
employment maintains job bulletin boards at the
Criser Hall courtyard, McCarty Hall first floor,
Norman Hall first floor, outside 305 Reitz Un-
ion, and outside H101 Shands Hospital.
Customer Service: SFA is open from 8:00 a.m. -

aid information, applications and advising,
students can go to 107 Criser Hall or call 392-

students.
ISIS: Students can access information about
their personal financial aid files via the Internet.
ISIS is an interactive system on UF's web site
that allows students access to their university
record. The web address is www.isis.ufl.edu.
SFA TIPS is an interactive telephone system
that allows students to access up-to-date finan-
cial aid information using their university PIN

ceive information about the status of their finan-
cial aid file, any required documents not yet
received, their award status, their deferment
status and whether their aid has been disbursed.
To access the system, dial 846-1183. SFA TIPS is

not earn a baccalaureate degree after 150 credit

terms), with the following exception: Students
may carry up to 160 credit hours for programs

tember to determine advancement to the next
class level. If they do not advance to the next
class level but are still eligible for enrollment
they will be on financial aid probation the fol-
lowing year. Students who have not advanced
to the next class level by the end of the proba-

well and secure employment.
The center's services focus upon the student,
from freshmen exploring careers to Graduate

Services are free and include counseling for
students seeking career planning, career
changes, work experience and job search cam-

Hundreds of recruiters visit the CRC each
semester and conduct over 12,000 on-campus
job interviews, the largest such program in the
state. The center uses a web based resume refer-
ral and interview management database,
G.R.A.D., the Gator Recruitment Activities
Database. Students who wish to participate in
the on-campus interview program-whether for
full-time, co-op or internship positions-must
first come to the CRC, where they are granted
entry into the system from any web accessible
computer. Once into the system, students com-
plete the demographic information, enter or
upload resume, and send the data to the CRC
for inclusion in its database. The information
can (and should) be updated as often as re-
quired. Once the information is in the CRC
system, the student is registered with the center
and may participate in on-campus interviews.
The center uses this information to provide
referrals directly to employers who have re-
quested candidates prior to on-campus inter-
views.
Career Days: The center sponsors a number of
these events each semester. Career Showcase
offers all students an opportunity to discuss
career and employment opportunities with
hundreds of national corporations.
Career Resource Library: Contains information
to help students make career choices: facts on
several thousand employers, employer contact
lists, directories for business, industry, educa-
tion and government, lists of American firms
operating overseas and reference material and
information on graduate and special studies
programs such as fellowships, assistantships
and other resource materials.
Research data is available on job trends,
outlook and economic forecasts, labor market
statistics, manpower bulletins for various career
fields, special directories and publications rating
most employers. More than 250 slide/tape,
video and audio programs provide career
choices, employer information, job search and
interview techniques.
A Credentials Repository and Referral Serv-
ice is available to students and alumni. Copies
of credentials are sent upon request to potential
employers. In addition, the center refers quali-
fied persons on file to interested employers
requesting candidates to fill job vacancies.
The World Wide Web: The Career Resource
Center and its list of jobs and career information
can be accessed at www.crc.ufl.edu. It contains
a full spectrum of information services and

HIV Infection: The university's policy is to
assess the needs of students, faculty or employ-
ees with HIV infection on a case-by-case basis.
With permission of the affected individual, the
director of the Student Health Care Center will
assist in the coordination of resources and serv-
ices.
The confidentiality of the individual's HIV
status as well as the individual's welfare are
respected. Breach of confidentiality of informa-
tion obtained by a university employee in an
official university capacity may result in disci-
plinary action.
Based on current medical information con-
cerning risk of infection, the university does not
isolate persons with HIV infection or AIDS from
other individuals in the educational or work
setting. Furthermore, the university supports
the continued participation, to the fullest extent
reasonably possible, of these individuals in the
campus educational/work environment.
It is also the policy of the university to pro-
vide education that seeks to prevent the spread
of HIV infection. Those at risk for HIV Infection
are encouraged to get tested; those who are
infected are urged to seek treatment. With cur-
rent advances in HIV /AIDS treatment, early
intervention is crucial to maintaining well-being
and delaying complications of the illness.
In keeping with the Americans with Dis-
abilities Act, the university considers HIV/AIDS
to be a disability. Existing support services can
be utilized by students or employees who are
disabled by HIV infection or AIDS.

Medical Excuse Note Policy: The Student
Health Care Center can provide a medical ex-
cuse note only if our providers are involved in
the medical care of a student who must be ab-


sent from class for 3 or more days for medical
reasons.
A student who has a medical reason which
results in less than 3 days of absence from class
should talk with his/her professor rather than
asking for an excuse note from the SHCC. If a
professor subsequently requires a note for a
medical absence of fewer than 3 days, then the
professor must provide the SHCC with a writ-
ten request on UF/Department letterhead.

curricular activities and administration of the
Student Honor Court. The university feels that
training in and responsibility for the conduct of
student affairs is a valuable part of educational
growth and development.
Student Government is the governing or-
ganization and representative of the student
body. Each student of the university is a mem-
ber of the student body. Student Government
functions under a constitution and by-laws that
have been accepted by the university as ex-
pressing the will of the students, although ulti-
mate authority for university affairs rests with
university administration. Powers are distrib-
uted into the three branches: legislative, which
is embodied in the Student Senate; judicial,
which is embodied in the Student Honor Court;
and executive, embodied in the president, vice-
president and the treasurer of the student body.
Members of all three branches are elected di-
rectly by the student body. In addition to
elected offices, many appointed positions have
been established, including Cabinet and sub-
Cabinet, Student Honor Court and Traffic Court
posts.
Student Government, recognizing its limita-
tions as a true "government," attempts to exer-
cise influence on governments at all levels
through conferences, lobbying, research and the
advancement of proposals for change.
Students may apply for various positions
within the student government structure by
contacting the Student Government offices on
the third floor of the J. Wayne Reitz Union.
Student Senate: The Student Senate is com-
posed of representatives elected from the col-
leges and living areas on and off campus and, in
general, acts as the legislative branch of Student
Government.
Religious Activities: The churches, centers and
organizations associated with the university
offer a variety of programs and ministries. There
are also interdenominational and nondenomina-
tional activities fostered by the Department of
Religion and the Campus Ministries Coopera-
tive.
Social Fraternities: Twenty-three fraternities
and twenty sororities have established chapters
at the university. The Interfratemity, National
Pan-Hellenic, Panhellenic Councils and Multi-


cultural Greek Council are the governing bodies
of all UF Greek organizations. The Interfrater-
nity Council supervises the activities of the 19
NIC fraternities and is composed of an execu-
tive board and the president of each fraternity.
The officially recognized national fraternities at
the university are Alpha Epsilon Pi, Alpha
Gamma Rho, Alpha Tau Omega, Beta Theta Pi,
Delta Tau Delta, Kappa Alpha,Lambda Chi
Alpha, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Kappa Tau, Phi
Sigma Kappa, Pi Kappa Phi, Sigma Alpha Ep-
silon, Sigma Chi, Sigma Nu, Sigma Phi Epsilon,"
Tau Epsilon Phi, Tau Kappa Epsilon, Theta Chi
and Zeta Beta Tau.
The National Pan-Hellenic Council is the
umbrella organization for the seven tradition-
ally African-American fraternities and sororities
at the university. The NPHC is composed of an
executive board and the president of each
group. The NPHC fraternities at the university
are Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega
Psi Phi and Phi Beta Sigma. The NPHC sorori-
ties are Alpha Kappa Alpha, Iota Phi Theta,
Sigma Gamma Rho and Zeta Phi Beta.
Primary jurisdiction in sorority matters is
vested in the Panhellenic Council. The Panhel-
lenic Council is composed of an executive board
and the president and Panhellenic delegate of
each of the university's sixteen National Pan-
hellenic Conference sororities. The members of
the Panhellenic Council are Alpha Chi Omega,
Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Epsilon Phi, Alpha Omi-
cron Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Chi Omega, Delta Delta
Delta, Delta Gamma, Delta Phi Epsilon, Kappa
Alpha Theta, Kappa Delta, Kappa Kappa
Gamma, Phi Mu, Pi Beta Phi, Sigma Kappa and
ZetaTau Alpha. The Multicultural Greek Coun-
cil is an emerging organization hat will serve as
the governing body for sororities and fraterni-
ties who have an ethnic, multicultural as well as
a non-traditional focus. Currently, there are five
national organizations that are working towards
receiving charters from the University of Flor-
ida. They are: Gamma Eta, Sigma Lambda Beta,
Sigma Lambda Alpha, Lamba Theta Alpha, and
Lambda Theta Phi.
In addition to the social fraternities and so-
rorities, there are approximately 220 honorary
and professional organizations and approxi-
mately 200 other special interest groups.

Academic Honesty
In the fall of 1995 the UF student body en-
acted a new honor code and voluntarily com-
mitted itself to the highest standards of honesty
and integrity. When students enroll at the uni-
versity, they commit themselves to the standard
drafted and enacted by the students.
Preamble: In adopting this honor code, the
students of the University of Florida recognize
that academic honesty and integrity are funda-
mental values of the university community.
Students who enroll at the university commit to
holding themselves and their peers to the high
standard of honor required by the honor code.
Any individual who becomes aware of a viola-
tion of the honor code is bound by honor to take


corrective action. The quality of a University of
Florida education is dependent upon commu-
nity acceptance and enforcement of the honor
code.
The Honor Code: We, the members of the Uni-
versity of Florida community, pledge to hold
ourselves and our peers to the highest stan-
dards of honesty and integrity.
On all work submitted for credit by students
at the university, the following pledge is either
required or implied:
"On my honor, I have neither given nor
received unauthorized aid in doing this
assignment."
Information on procedures is located in the
Student Guide at http://dso.ufl.edu/stg/ and
is set forth in Florida Administrative Code.

Student Conduct Code
Students enjoy the rights and privileges that
accrue to membership in a university
community and are subject to the responsibili-
ties that accompany that membership. In order
to have a system of effective campus govern-
ance, it is incumbent upon all members of the
campus community to notify appropriate offi-
cials of any violations of regulations and to
assist in their enforcement. The university's
conduct regulations are available to all students
on the Internet at http://dso.ufl.edu/stg/ and
are set forth in Florida Administrative Code.
Questions can be directed to the Dean of Stu-
dents Office in 202 Peabody Hall, 392-1261.

Intercollegiate Athletics
For each of the last 10 years the University of
Florida has ranked among the nations five best
collegiate athletic programs and among the
nations 10 best for 16 straight years, based on
research conducted by USA Today and the Na-
tional Association of Collegiate Directors of
Athletics. Florida and UCLA are the only
schools to finish in the top 10 in national all-
sports rankings every year since 1983-84, while
Florida, UCLA and Stanford are the only
schools in the nation to finish in the top five in
the nation over the past 10 years.
On the strength of 11 top 10 national fin-
ishes, highlighted by a national title by the
women's soccer team, the University of Florida
finished tied for fourth in the 1998-99 Sears
Directors' Cup national all-sports competition.
The Directors' Cup program, conducted by
the National Association of Collegiate Directors
of Athletics (NACDA) and sponsored by Sears,
annually recognizes schools with the best over-
all sports performances in an academic year.
The all-sports champion is determined by
points awarded for an institution's finish in up
to 20 sports. Fielding 18 athletic teams, Florida
captured fourth place with 580 points. Stanford
seized the title with 910 points.
In addition to the women's soccer title, 10
other Gator teams finished in the top 10 of their
respective sports in 1998-99: Women's Tennis
(2n); Volleyball (3d); Women's Indoor Track &
Field (4'); Men's Tennis (5th); Football (6'h);





STUDENT LIFE


Men's Indoor Track & Field (7h); Women's
Swimming (8"); Men's Outdoor Track & Field
(9"t); Men's Basketball (9'"); Gymnastics (10"h).
The Gators also captured four Southeastern
Conference Championships in 1998-99, raising
its total to 51 since the 1990-91 academic year.
The Gators won SEC crowns in men's golf, soc-
cer, women's tennis, and volleyball. The Gator
athletics program collected its eighth consecu-
tive SEC All-Sports Trophy. The men won their
second consecutive SEC All-Sports Trophy,
while the women finished second. Florida has
now won the All-Sports Trophy for eight con-
secutive years and 10 of the last 12.
Individually, 59 Gator athletes earned All-
America honors in 1998-99, and three Gators
won individual national titles. Florida athletes
also garnered five SEC Athletes of the Year
honors and two Gator coaches were named SEC
Coaches of the Year.
Florida was equally successful away from
the athletic arena in 1998-99, with 121 student-
athletes named to the Southeastern Conferences
Academic Honor Roll, setting the league single-
season record for recipients for a second con-
secutive year. Florida's 713 Academic Honor
Roll recipients in the decade of the 1990s and
1,029 honorees since 1980 are the top totals in
the SEC during those time spans.
In addition, in an era when the NCAA esti-
mates 70 percent of Division I schools are losing
money on intercollegiate athletics, the Gator
athletic program continued to have an impact in
regard to University academic programs. Since
1990, the University Athletic Association has
contributed more than 16.3 million dollars to
the University to help fund academic endeav-
ors.
Florida's athletic program also serves as a
focal point for the surrounding community and
beyond. More than 6.8 million fans have filed
through the gates to attend UF sporting events
over the last eight years and more than 856,000
fans attended home events in 1998-99. Five of
UF's athletic teams ranked among the top 10 in
national attendance in 1998-99.
In addition, the "Goodwill Gators"-a pro-
gram where UF student-athletes, coaches and
administrators take part in community-related
endeavors--was recognized by the National
Consortium of Academics and Sports and re-
ceived the 1998 Outreach and Service Award.
Over the past two years, UF student-athletes
have participated in more than 250 events by
reaching out to more than 12,000 individuals of
all ages.
Florida is a member of the National Colle-
giate Association of Athletics (NCAA) and
competes in Division I for all 18 athletic teams.
The Gators field eight men's teams and 10
women's sports. The men compete in baseball,
basketball, cross country, football, golf, swim-
ming & diving, tennis, track & field, while the
women participate in basketball, cross country,
golf, gymnastics, swimming & diving, soccer,
softball, tennis, track & field and volleyball.
Florida competes in the Southeastern Con-
ference (SEC), a 12-member conference divided


into Eastern and Western Divisions. Florida
joins Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Ten-
nessee and Vanderbilt in the Eastern Division,
while Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Louisiana
State, Mississippi and Mississippi State consti-
tute the Western Division. Florida was a charter
member of the SEC in 1933.
In addition to fielding some of the best col-
lege athletes, the University of Florida can also
lay claim to some of the world's finest athletes,
who are showcased every four years at the
Olympic Games. Since 1968, spanning eight
Olympic Games, 83 Gator student-athletes have
represented 16 countries and claimed 51 med-
als-including 25 gold. Nineteen Gators and one
UF coach participated in the 1996 Olympics in
Atlanta and captured three medals.
When talk turns to facilities, the University
of Florida's centrally-located athletic complex is
among the nation's best.
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at Florida Field
(football stadium) serves as the hub for the ath-
letic complex. With its 83,000 seats, Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium at Florida Field is one of the
eight largest on-campus football stadiums in the
nation. UF has ranked among the nation's top
15 in average football attendance for 17 con-
secutive years and among the country's top five
for eight straight years.
Since 1986, Florida has had $74 million in
capital improvements, including two major
expansions of the football stadium, a multi-
purpose athletic field house and new tennis,
track & field and soccer, softball, baseball, golf,
soccer and swimming facilities.
Another sign of Florida's commitment, to ex-
cellence within its athletic complex is the 12,000-
seat Stephen C. O'Connell Center, which houses
Gator basketball and also transforms into an
indoor track & field facility. Undergoing an $8.1
million facelift in the summer of 1998 to give the
facility a permanent roof and another $2.5 up-
grade in 1999 to improve upper level seating
and lobbies, the O'Dome also serves as home for
the swimming & diving and gymnastic teams.
There are 101 courts and outdoor playing
fields on the University of Florida campus,
while the O'Connell center and a state-of-art
recreation and fitness center is available for
indoor sports. In all, Florida offers more than 50
intramural and club sports, and the campus is
located near many recreational lakes and rivers.
The beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic
Ocean are just a short drive away, as well as
many of the attractions which the Sunshine
State has to offer
Lake Wauburg: UF students, faculty and staff
have their own private lake-front parks located
eight miles south on U.S. 441. Lake Wauburg
North and South are outdoor recreation facilities
owned and operated year round by the univer-
sity. Each facility offers quiet places to relax or
picnic. Park entry fees are free with your Gator 1
card. The north park opens at noon and the
south park at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
Saturday and Sunday the parks open at 10:00
a.m. Both parks close at 6:00 p.m.


Wauburg North offers 25 acres of shaded
grassy picnic areas with tables and grills set on a
hill overlooking the lake and the swimming
area. Canoes, kayaks, paddle boats and row-
boats are available and can be checked out for
free with your Gator 1 card. Beach volleyball
and fishing from the dock are popular activities.
Wauburg's south shore offers 65 acres of
natural Florida. Enjoy the unspoiled beauty of
Lake Wauburg along the dock and beach area.
Eagles and ospreys often fly over the lake.
Guests can walk the nature trails or play a game
of frisbee golf at the 18-hole championship
course. Soccer and softball playing fields are
also available.
Sailing and waterskiing programs are also
offered at Lake Wauburg; ask a staff person how
to join. Large groups may reserve the Gator
Lodge or pavilions for picnics, parties or meet-
ings.

Student Recreation &
Fitness Centers
The Student Recreation and Fitness Center
(SRFC) is located off Fletcher Drive, behind the
Florida gym, and has racquetball and squash
courts, two aerobics rooms, and a strength and
conditioning room with cardiovascular and
Nautilus, and free weight equipment. A multi-
purpose area accommodates volleyball, basket-
ball and martial arts activities. The Lifestyle
Appraisal Center, room 103 of the SRFC, offers
fitness assessments and wellness information.
The Southwest Recreation Center (SWRC) is
located across from the Ham Museum on Hull
Road. It contains racquetball, basketball and
volleyball courts, an aerobics room, and a
strength and conditioning room with free
weights, Med-X and cardiovascular equipment.

Parking and Traffic Regulations
Any student of the university is eligible to
register and operate a vehicle on campus. Park-
ing eligibility is determined by the student's
local address and academic classification.
Students registering a vehicle on campus
must be registered for class and present their

must be filed for the specific term the student
wishes to enter the university and will be con-
sidered for that term ONLY. Applicants who
wish to change their entry date should contact
the Office of Admissions for application in-
structions. An approval for admission is valid
ONLY for the term specified in the admission
notice.

General Requirements
The general requirements for admission or
readmission to any college or division of the
university include:
A $20 application fee for new applicants.
A satisfactory academic record. Each appli-
cant must furnish a complete chronological
record of educational institutions previously
attended. Official transcripts must be sub-
mitted in accordance with the instructions
on the application. Failure to declare atten-
dance at another institution could cause in-
validation of admission and any credits or
degrees earned.
Satisfactory scores on achievement tests or
aptitude tests.
A satisfactory conduct record.
All junior, senior, postbaccalaureate and
graduate international students whose na-
tive language is not English must submit
TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Lan-
guage) scores, in addition to other required
test scores.


The specific requirements for admission to
the university for the first time as a freshman,
undergraduate transfer, postbaccalaureate,
graduate,
dental, law, medical, pharmacy or veterinary
medicine student may be found in the appropri-
ate sections that follow. The specific require-
ments for readmission (at the same or a different
level) to the university also may be found in the
appropriate sections that follow.
It should be understood, however, that
minimum requirements are given and that ad-
mission to the university is selective. The satis-
faction of minimum requirements does not
automatically guarantee admission. Under
Board of Regents policy, a limited number of
students may be admitted as exceptions.
Any student who is admitted conditionally
may enroll subject to verification that the condi-
tions of admission have been satisfied. If the
final credentials fail to confirm the conditions
for admission, the admission will be revoked,
the student's classification will be in a nonde-
gree status and continued enrollment will be
denied.
Furnishing false or fraudulent statements or
information in connection with an application
for admission or residence affidavit can result in
disciplinary action, denial of admission and
invalidation of credits or degrees earned.
Minimum Requirements for Admission
Minimum requirements evolved from studies of
student performance. These studies identify
primary factors that indicate a reasonable
chance for completion of a degree at the univer-
sity. The University Admissions Committee is
responsible for administering all admissions,
including applicants approved as exceptions to
the minimum admission requirements.
Students who plan to enter the university for
the first time will be classified as follows.
* Beginning Freshmen: Students who have
earned fewer than 12 semester hours fol-
lowing graduation from high school. (See
Admission as a Freshman)
Undergraduate Transfers: Students who have
earned at least 12 semester hours following
graduation from high school, and who have
not received a bachelor's degree. (See Ad-

Computer Requirement
Access to and on-going use of a computer
are required for all students. The university
expects each student entering the university and
continuing students entering to acquire com-
puter hardware and software appropriate to the
degree program. Competency in the basic use of
a computer is a requirement for graduation;
class assignments may require use of a com-
puter, academic advising and registration can be
done by computer and university correspon-
dence is often sent via e-mail.
While the university offers limited access
to computers through its computer labs, most
students are expected to purchase or lease a
computer that is capable of dial-up or network
connection to the Internet, graphical access to
the World Wide Web, and productivity func-
tions such as word processing and spreadsheet
calculation.
For the freshman and sophomore years,
these functions can be provided by most cur-
rently available standard microcomputers with
an office software suite and printer. Appropriate
networking and Internet software is available
from the university at no additional cost. Sam-
ple minimum configurations are provided be-
low.
Individual colleges will provide additional
requirements and recommendations. Consult
the appropriate college section in the catalog or
the CIRCA web page at www.circa.ufl.edu/ com-
puters.

Admission as a Freshman
Refer also to Required Placement Examina-
tions.
Composite pictures of the SAT results of
recent freshman classes at the university indi-
cate that the middle 50 percent of admitted fall
freshmen score between 1200 and 1360 on the
SAT. In addition, more than 50 percent of each
entering class has earned a B+ or better average
in high school academic subjects. While there is
no minimum grade average or test score to as-
sure admission or success in college, prospective
applicants are urged to discuss these data with
their school counselors before applying.
When to Apply: The best time to apply is early
in the senior year of secondary school. Fall term
priority is provided to qualified applicants
whose applications and supporting records are
received in the Office of Admissions prior to
January 15. Admission to the University of
Florida is a selective process. For Fall 1999 we


were able to admit slightly more than half of our
21,000 applicants for freshman admission. Al-
though we encourage all interested students to
apply, it is important to have knowledge of the
competition for admission spaces. Applicants
are encouraged to take seriously the application
process and make the strongest application
possible.
The selection process to the University of
Florida allows for approximately 50% of our
freshman class to be admitted on the basis of the
applicants' academic credentials. The remain-
der of the class will be admitted through a ho-
listic review of all the information contained in
the application, both academic and personal. It
is important for the applicant to know that
many factors are considered in the admissions
process. It is very difficult to predict the admis-
sibility of any applicant without considering all
the information contained in the application file,
and the size and strength of the applicant pool.
Admission for Florida Residents
These requirements for admission considera-
tion give priority to those applicants whose total
record indicates the greatest likelihood of aca-
demic success.
Graduation from a regionally accredited or
state-approved secondary school or the
equivalent (G.E.D., etc.).
Fifteen (15) academic units in college pre-
paratory courses. The following distribution
of the 15 academic units is required:
English (with substantial
writing requirements)........................................ 4
Mathematics (Algebra 1, Formal
Geometry, Algebra II)................................... 3
Natural Science (2 units of which include
substantial laboratory requirements).......... 3
Social Science ....................................................... 3
Foreign Language (must be sequential) ........... 2
An overall C average in high school aca-
demic courses as computed by the Univer-
sity of Florida. An overall C average, as
computed by the university, is also required
at each collegiate institution attended. Col-
lege deficiencies earned through high school
dual-enrollment programs will be reviewed
individually.
* A record of good conduct. Major or con-
tinuing difficulty with school or other offi-
cials may render an applicant ineligible re-
gardless of academic qualifications.
Please note: Applicants who present scores
on the G.E.D. also must present records from
sec-ondary schools attended and standardized
test scores. The applicant's overall academic
background will be considered.
* A total score of at least 950 on the SAT with
a minimum verbal score of 420 and a mini-
mum quantitative score of 440. On the ACT,
a composite score of 19 is required with a
minimum of 16 on the English subsection, a
minimum of 16 on the math subsection and
a minimum of 16 on the reading subsection.

Meeting this index alone does not guarantee
admission to the university.
Any Florida student who meets the mini-
mum admission requirements and who is inter-
ested in attending the university is urged to
submit an application. Applicants should be
aware, however, that admission is highly com-
petitive when the number of qualified appli-
cants exceeds the number that the university is
permitted to enroll. An applicant's total high
school record including grades, test scores, edu-
cational objective and pattern of courses com-
pleted, school recommendation and personal
background and record will be considered.
Any student who does not graduate from a
regionally accredited secondary school must
provide, in addition to a transcript and SAT or
ACT results, the results of the following SAT II
examinations: writing, mathematics (level II-C),
foreign language, science and social science.
Admission for Non-Florida Residents
Because UF must limit the number of enter-
ing freshmen in the fall class, only a small num-
ber of highly qualified students from states
other than Florida may be admitted.
Early Admission
Applications for early admission (i.e., admis-
sion following completion of the junior year
of high school) will be considered individually
by the admissions committee. Applications
should be submitted in accordance with univer-
sity deadlines.
In addition to the application, the following
items are needed:
* A written statement by the student setting
forth reasons for requesting early admission.
* An official transcript of the applicant's sec-
ondary school record covering grades 9, 10,
11. An overall academic average of 3.9 is ex-
pected.
* Results of either the SAT or ACT. An SAT
total score of 1350 or a composite score of 30
on the Enhanced ACT is required.
* A letter from the student's high school prin-
cipal or guidance counselor stating specific
reasons why the applicant would profit
more from early admission than by comple-
tion of the senior year of high school.
Eligible early admission students from
Florida high schools may be funded through
dual credit enrollment. Dual enrollment refers
to a student taking on-campus courses simulta-
neously at both the University of Florida and
another institution. If the parent institution is a






STUDENT INFORMATION


Florida high school, the student may qualify for
tuition-exempt dual enrollment credit and may
receive textbooks/ materials on a lend-return
basis. There must be an articulation agreement
between the university and the home county
school board, developmental research school or
other secondary school.
Qualified high school students will be en-
rolled as nondegree students and credits earned
prior to high school graduation may be accepted
subsequently for advanced standing and degree
credit when the student is admitted to the uni-
versity. For more information, refer to Academic
Regulations (especially the sections on Dual
Enrollment and Nondegree Registration)..
The university provides numerous opportu-
nities other than early admission to accelerate
graduation. For additional information, please
refer to the Academic Advising section.
Advance Housing Payment
Entering freshmen are required to make a
housing deposit within 30 days of acceptance, if
they desire to live in university housing. The
housing deposit, less a $25 service charge, is
refundable until May 1 for applicants accepted
for admission to the fall freshman class.
Admission with Advanced Standing
The university participates in the Advanced
Placement (AP) program, the College Level
Examination Program (CLEP), the International
Baccalaureate (IB) program and the Advanced
International Certificate of Education (AICE).
Students entering the university offer a nation-
ally graded examination as evidence of comple-
tion of a college-level course taken in high
school. Depending on the results, the student
may receive university credit or exemption from
such courses without credit. (Refer to the Aca-
demic Advising section.)
Admission with Outstanding Credentials
Offers of admission with coursework cur-
rently in progress are tentative, pending review
of final transcripts. Admission offers are subject
to cancellation if final coursework does not meet
admission requirements.

Admission as a Transfer Student
Refer also to Required Placement Examina-
tions.
Who Must Apply as a Transfer Student? Ap-
plicants who have earned at least 12 semester
hours of credit following graduation from high
school.
When to Apply: Applications may be submitted
up to one year in advance of the entering term.
Applicants should apply at least six months
prior to the term they plan to enter. They should
refer to the application deadlines in the univer-
sity calendar and consult the college to which
they intend to apply. (Note: In a number of
programs, the sequence of professional courses
begins ONLY in the fall term of the junior year.)
An applicant who delays filing an application


may not be able to furnish the necessary records
in time for admission to the term desired.
This section lists the general admission re-
quirements for transfer students. It should be
noted, however, that admission to the univer-
sity is selective and satisfaction of these gen-
eral requirements does not guarantee admis-
sion. The colleges of the university have limited
enrollment quotas. Transfer applicants who
meet the minimum admission requirements will
be referred to the appropriate college for en-
rollment consideration. Refer to the appropriate
college's section of this catalog for further in-
formation.

Florida Public Community College Graduates
This section applies ONLY to new students
seeking to transfer directly from a Florida public
community college with the Associate of Arts degree.
All other community college applicants, undergradu-
ate transfer applicants from four-year colleges or
universities and applicants for readmission should
consult the appropriate sections that follow.
The University of Florida subscribes to the
articulation agreement between the state uni-
versities and public community colleges of
Florida: Any graduate of a state-approved
Florida public community college is eligible for
admission to a university if the student has
completed a university parallel program and
received the Associate of Arts degree, provided
the degree has been awarded on the basis of the
following:
* At least 60 semester hours of academic work
exclusive of occupational courses;
An approved general education program of
at least 36 semester hours;
A grade point average of at least 2.0 on a 4.0
scale on all college-level academic courses.
Applicants must have completed two se-
quential courses of foreign language in secon-
dary school or 8-10 sequential semester hours at
the postsecondary level, or document an
equivalent level of proficiency.
A transcript must be furnished from each in-
stitution attended regardless of length of atten-
dance or credit earned. Additional transcripts
are required as soon as they are available for
any work completed after an application. Any
student who has failed to maintain a minimum
C average at another institution after complet-
ing the A.A. degree is not eligible for admission.
Regardless of the average earned, courses com-
pleted at other institutions must parallel the
curriculum at UF.
An undergraduate transfer applicant enter-
ing the university with junior class standing
(AA degree from a Florida public community
college or 60 semester hours of acceptable trans-
fer credit) must have passed the College Level
Academic Skills Test (CLAST) or an approved
alternative to be admitted in a degree-seeking
status.
Applicants seeking admission to a program
in teacher education must submit SAT or ACT
scores. These scores should be forwarded to the
Office of Admissions as soon as possible after
submitting an application for admission. Some


colleges with enrollment quotas require appli-
cants to submit test scores; when test scores are
required, the college will contact the applicant.
Within space and fiscal limitations, appli-
cants who have satisfied the above minimum
requirements will be considered for admission
at the junior level. Transfer students may be
required to take additional pre-professional
courses not completed at the junior college.
However, such courses will not reduce the
number of credits required at this university.
Other Transfer Applicants
This section applies to students seeking to trans-
fer from a Florida public community college without
an Associate of Arts degree in a university parallel
program and to all undergraduate transfer applicants
from other colleges or universities.
Admission as a Freshman or Sophomore: The
number of spaces available for students trans-
ferring with fewer than 60 hours credit is ex-
tremely limited, so limited that very few are
accepted. Students are encouraged to remain at
their Florida community college until comple-
tion of the Associate of Arts degree or to transfer
to a Florida community college to complete the
A.A. degree.
* An applicant must have been eligible for
admission to the University of Florida as a
beginning freshman to be considered for
admission as a transfer student. (See section,
Admission as a Freshman.)
An applicant must be in good standing and
eligible to return to any institution previ-
ously attended. A student who for any rea-
son would not be allowed to return to an in-
stitution previously attended cannot be con-
sidered for admission to UF.
An applicant must have a C average or
higher (as computed by the university) on all
work attempted at each institution previ-
ously attended. No application can be con-
sidered until complete official transcripts of
all undergraduate work are received by the
Office of Admissions.
An applicant must present a satisfactory
conduct record. Regardless of other qualifi-
cations, an applicant who has experienced
serious or continuing difficulty with school
or other authorities because of improper
conduct may find his or her application de-
nied.
Admission as a Junior or Senior: Transfer ap-
plicants with 60 or more hours' credit must
satisfy the requirements listed above (with the
exception of the first asterisk) for admission as a
freshman or sophomore transfer. Applicants
seeking admission to a program in teacher edu-
cation must submit scores on the SAT or the
ACT. These scores should be forwarded to the
Office of Admissions as soon as possible after
submitting an application. Some colleges with
enrollment quotas require applicants to submit
test scores; when test scores are required, the
college will contact the applicant. In addition,
the following requirements also must be satis-
fied:






ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


* An applicant must present a minimum of 60
semester hours (or 90 quarter hours) of ac-
ceptable college courses, with not more than
four semester hours in military science
and/or basic required physical education, as
credit for advanced standing.
An applicant must present transcripts veri-
fying completion of the courses (or accept-
able substitutes) required for admission by
the college. (See appropriate college section
of this catalog.) If recommended by the col-
lege, an applicant lacking some requirements
may be permitted to enroll in that college
and to complete those courses if all other re-
quirements for admission are met; however,
such 1000-2000 level courses will not reduce
the number of credits required for a degree.
College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST):
Applicants admitted in a degree-seeking sta-
tus who have had the opportunity to take
the CLAST, MUST have completed it (or its
approved alternative) satisfactorily. Students
with fewer than 96 semester hours who are
transferring from private colleges in Florida
or from out-of-state colleges who have not
had the opportunity to take the test, MUST
have satisfied the CLAST requirement by the
end of the first term of enrollment. Appli-
cants with 96 or more hours of transferable
credit must have satisfied the CLAST re-
quirement prior to admission.
All applicants must have completed two
sequential courses of foreign language in
secondary school or 8-10 sequential semester
hours at the postsecondary level, or docu-
ment an equivalent level of proficiency.

Required Placement Examinations
- SAT II, AP, IB
Several courses commonly taken by in-
coming students require placement to enroll.
These courses include English Composition,
Calculus I, General Chemistry and courses in
French, German, Latin and Spanish. Nearly all
freshmen will need placement for English Com-
position. In addition, first-year students head-
ing toward a pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-
pharmacy, pre-veterinary medicine, science or
engineering college curriculum are generally
required to take calculus and chemistry and will
therefore need appropriate placement for those
courses.
Students should consult the Academic Ad-
vising section for more detailed information on
whether they will need placement as well as
score requirements for the SAT II, AP and IB
examinations.
Incoming students should take all SAT II
tests by January of the senior year in high
school. Superior results allow students to place
into advanced courses at the beginning of their
college careers.

English Composition: Students are placed into
English Composition on the basis of their SAT
or ACT Verbal score. No further placement
testing is required, although SAT II, AP or IB


scores may also used for placement into English
Composition.

Calculus I: Students wishing to enroll in Cal-
culus I (either MAC 2233 or MAC 2311) must
demonstrate appropriate background before
they may enroll in either Calculus I course.
Students who have completed MAC 1147 (Pre-
calculus Algebra and Trigonometry) with a C or
better may enroll in either Calculus I course. An
AP score may provide placement into Calculus I.

Students who wish to enroll in Calculus I who
have not completed MAC 1147 (and do not have
appropriate AP scores) must take and pass the
SAT II Math Level II-C exam. No placement is
required for enrollment in MAC 1147 (Precal-
culus) or other lower math courses.

Chemistry: Students wishing to enroll in Gen-
eral Chemistry (CHM 2040 or CHM 2045) must
demonstrate appropriate background before
they may enroll in the course. Both courses
require high school credit for Chemistry and
Algebra II.

Students are placed into General Chemistry on
the basis of their SAT or ACT Quantitative
score. An AP or IB score may also provide
placement. Students may wish to take the SAT II
Chemistry examination as it may provide a
better assessment of their background. In addi-
tion, students who do not place into CHM 2045
based on SAT or ACT Quantitative score may
choose to take and pass the SAT II Chemistry
exam to enroll in CHM 2045. No placement is
required for enrollment in CHM 1083 or CHM
1020.

French, German, Latin and Spanish: Students
who have previously studied one of these lan-
guages and wish to enroll in the same language
at UF must take the SAT II placement exam. An
AP or IB score may also provide placement.
Placement into French, German, Latin and
Spanish is determined by a combination of SAT
II score and previous background.

Admission to Postbaccalaureate
Studies
Postbaccalaureate study is for students who
already have received a baccalaureate degree
from an accredited institution. Postbaccalaure-
ate admission options include:
* Expand academic background
* Earn a second and different bachelor's de-
gree
* Complete prerequisites for a health profes-
sions college
* Take prerequisites for graduate school
* Complete a second major in the same degree
previously earned
Many departments have limited or restricted
admission to the options cited above. Appli-
cants should contact the department in which
they are interested to ensure that their goals can
be accommodated.


When to Apply: Applications may be submitted
up to one year in advance and applicants are
urged to apply as early as possible. Applications
must be submitted by the deadline for the term.
Some departments have deadlines for the re-
ceipt of applications and supporting records
that are earlier than the general deadlines for the
university. All applicants are advised to refer to
the university calendar published in this catalog
and to verify department deadlines-with the
appropriate department.
Application for admission as a postbaccalau-
reate student must be made to Office of Admis-
sions, Box 2946, University of Florida,
Gainesville, FL, 32602-2946, on forms supplied
by that office. Applications meeting minimum

Examination (GRE). For some colleges and de-
partments, and in more advanced levels of
graduate study, an undergraduate grade point
average or GRE score above the minimums may
be required and are on file in the Graduate
School.
Some colleges and departments require a
reading knowledge of at least one foreign lan-
guage. Exceptions are made only when these
and other criteria are reviewed and recom-
mended by the department and approved by
the college and the Graduate School.
Admission to the Graduate School is de-
pendent upon presentation of a baccalaureate
degree from an accredited college or university.
The departments will make admission decisions
when they have received test scores, transcripts
and letters of recommendation. Applicants must
provide two copies of complete transcripts for
all undergraduate and graduate coursework.
One copy must be sent to the Office of the Uni-
versity Registrar and one copy to the intended
department. No transcript will be accepted as
official unless it is received directly from the
registrar's office of that institution. Official sup-
plementary transcripts are required as soon as
they are available for any work completed after
an application has been made. In general, no
student who is a graduate of a non-accredited
institution will be considered for graduate
study.
The Board of Regents will allow admission
of up to ten percent of new admits in a given
class as exceptions. Students admitted as excep-
tions under the ten-percent waiver rule must
present both a grade point average and GRE
score with their application and meet other
criteria required by the university.

Admissions Examinations
Graduate Record Examination: In addition to
the GRE, some departments request scores on
one or more advanced subject tests of the GRE.
All scores will be considered.
Graduate Study in Business Administration:
Students applying for admission to the Gradu-
ate School for study in the Warrington College
of Business Administration or the Fisher School
of Accounting may substitute satisfactory scores
on the Graduate Management Admission Test
(GMAT) for the GRE. Students applying for
admission to the Master of Business Admini-

tion scores or final grades are available. Stu-


dents also may be granted conditional admis-
sion to pursue graduate work if previous rec-
ords or GRE scores are borderline or when spe-
cific prerequisite courses are required.
Students granted conditional admission will
be notified by the department of the conditions
of their admission. When these conditions have
been satisfied, the department will notify the
student in writing and will send a copy to the
Graduate School. Eligible coursework taken
while a student is in conditional status is appli-
cable toward a graduate degree. Students failing
to meet any condition of admission will not be
able to register.
International Students
All international students seeking admission
to the Graduate School are required to submit
satisfactory scores on the GRE and on the
TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language)
with the following exceptions:
* International students whose native lan-
guage is English or who have earned one
year or more of university or college
coursework in the U.S. or in a country where
English is the official language do not need
to submit TOEFL scores, but they must
submit satisfactory scores on the GRE before
their application can be considered.
All international students applying to the
MBA program must submit satisfactory
GMAT scores before their application will be
considered.
International students are required to hold

health care institution. Failure to comply
may result in cancellation of registration.
International students whose scores on the
TOEFL and verbal portion of the GRE do not
indicate adequate writing skills are required to
write a short essay. If the skills demonstrated in
the essay are not acceptable, the examination
will be used as a diagnostic tool for placement
in appropriate courses, which will not count
toward a graduate degree.
Graduate students whose native language is
not English may be asked to submit satisfactory
scores on the Test of Spoken English (TSE) to be
eligible for teaching assistantships.
Applicants should write the Educational
Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey, for reg-

forms requesting additional information. Sub-
mission of committee evaluations or letters of
recommendation are not necessary until the
formal application forms are filed.
The college looks for students with high
standards of scholastic achievement, moral
character and motivation. Applicants must pos-
sess high aptitude and exceptional academic
preparation because of the science studies that
must be mastered. The personal relationship
between patient and dentist places the latter in a
position of trust, which demands maturity,
integrity, intellectual honesty and responsibility.
A broad representation of the ethnic mixture of
the state is sought in the student body. The
college adheres to the principles of ethnic, racial,
religious and social equality among its student
body and faculty.
Generally, applicants should plan to com-
plete the requirements for a bachelor's degree.
However, qualified students may be accepted
without a bachelor's degree, provided they
show evidence of sufficient preparation. Appli-
cants with an overall B average will receive the
strongest consideration for admission.
All applicants must take the Dental Admis-
sion Test, preferably in the spring preceding
submission of their application or, at the latest,
during the fall testing period. The test is given
twice a year. Following a review of all applica-
tion materials and Dental Admission Test scores
by the Dental Admissions Committee, inter-
views will be arranged for competitive appli-
cants.

Application Fee
Each application for admission must be ac-
companied by a nonrefundable $20 application
fee (U.S. currency drawn on a U.S. bank). An
application will not be processed without the
application fee. If you find it difficult to submit
the application fee because of currency restric-
tions in your country, we suggest that you re-
quest a friend or relative in the United States to
submit the fee on your behalf.


Academic Records
Consideration of an application cannot be
given until ALL required credentials are re-
ceived by the Office of Admissions. All docu-
ments must be accompanied by certified English
translations and become the property of the
university. Credentials of applicants who do not
enroll will be destroyed and cannot be returned
or forwarded.
Send applications and credentials to the
Office of Admissions, P. O. Box 2946, Univer-
sity of Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32602-2946,
U.S.A.

Notice of Admission
When an application for admission is ap-
proved, an official notice will be sent by the
university. Admission is for a SPECIFIC term. If
a student is unable to enroll for the term indi-
cated, the Office of Admissions should be in-
formed immediately. If the student wishes to be
considered for entrance to a different term, the
Office of Admissions must be advised.
Under no circumstances should an applicant
make plans to depart for Gainesville until offi-
cial notification has been provided by the uni-
versity. A student who comes to campus with-
out a notice of admission does so entirely at his
or her own risk. The student's presence on cam-
pus will not influence the decision for admis-
sion.
Because of the limited resources available in
terms of faculty, staff and physical facilities,
only those international students who submit
superior academic records can be approved for
admission.

Readmission
Readmission applies to students who have
been previously admitted and who have at-
tended the university.
Former undergraduate students who do not
enroll at the university for two consecutive
terms, including any summer term, must apply
for readmission. Readmission, however, is not
guaranteed and is subject to availability at the
appropriate level, college or major. Students
who skip a single term will be scheduled auto-
matically for a registration appointment for one
additional term.
How to Apply for Readmission
Applications are available on the Internet at
www.reg.ufl.edu/readmission-app.html or
from the Office of Admissions, Box 114000,
University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611-
4000. Forms and directions vary with the level
of readmission. Applicants should indicate the
college and the level of last enrollment at the
university as well as the college and level to
which they wish to apply. Applications must be
received in the Office of Admissions by the
deadline published in the university calendar.


Satisfactory Academic Record
Applicants must be eligible to return to the
university. If applicants have attended any col-
lege or university since last enrolled at the Uni-
versity of Florida, they also must have a C or
higher average (as computed by UF) on all work
attempted at each institution. (Note: Grades
received at other institutions are not averaged
with grades received at UF for the purpose of
meeting university grade-point average re-
quirements.)
Students must list all institutions attended
and provide complete official transcripts from
each. Failure to declare attendance at another
institution could iihvalidate admission and any
credits or degrees earned. Applicants also must
be in good standing and eligible to return to
each institution previously attended.
All readmission applicants must meet the
current admission requirements of the college or
school they expect to enter. Readmission is not
guaranteed and is subject to availability at the
level, college or major. (Consult the appropriate
college section in this catalog for admission
requirements.) Readmission is for a specific
term. If a student is unable to enroll for the
term indicated, he or she must apply for read-
mission to a different term.
Satisfactory Conduct Record
Applicants must present a satisfactory rec-
ord of conduct. Regardless of other qualifica-
tions, applicants who have experienced major or
continuing difficulties with school or other
authorities since the last enrollment at the Uni-
versity of Florida may find their application for
readmission denied.
Fresh Start Program
Former undergraduate students who have
been dismissed and who wish to return to the
University of Florida after an absence of no
fewer than five calendar years (during which
they have engaged predominantly in nonaca-
demic activities) may petition for undergradu-
ate readmission under the Fresh Start Program.
If admitted, credit for previous UF courses in
which a grade of C or better was earned will be
calculated in UF hours earned and may be ap-
plied toward a degree. No grades previously
earned in UF courses will be included in the UF
grade point average. All previous course at-
tempts and grades received will remain on the
student's academic record and transcript.
Students may not apply for the Fresh Start
Program subsequent to readmission to the uni-
versity. Students who have been readmitted
under Fresh Start may not petition subsequently
for any retroactive change to their academic
records. Students admitted under Fresh Start
who do not enroll must reapply for a future
term.
For additional information on policy and
procedures, former students who wish to peti-
tion for readmission under the Fresh Start Pro-
gram should contact the dean of the college into
which they seek readmission.






ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


Academic Regulations
Each student is responsiblefor becoming familiar
with the rules and regulations of the university and
for applying them as appropriate. Additional infor-
mation relative to academic rules, conduct, gradua-
tion, social activities, failure in studies, etc., may be
found in the sections containing regulations of the
colleges and schools and in the schedule of courses.




Classification of Students
Students are classified at the following levels
by the Office of the University Registrar each
semester:

Classification Explanation

0 Special transient students,
qualified high school stu-
dents and other nondegree-
students who have been
permitted to register at the
University of Florida.
1 Students with fewer than 30
credits earned.
2 Students who have earned 30
credits or more, but fewer
than 60 credits.
3 Students who have earned 60
credits or more, but fewer
than 90 credits.
4 Students who have earned 90
credits or more.
5 Students who are candidates
for a degree in a program
which normally requires 10
semesters and who have
earned 120 credits or more.
6 Postbaccalaureate students:
Degree-holding students
who have been admitted to
postbaccalaureate status.
7 Graduate students seeking a
first master's degree.
8 Graduate students who have
earned a master's degree, or
who have earned 36 or more
credits while seeking a
graduate degree, but who
have not been admitted to
doctoral candidacy.
9 Graduate students who have
been admitted to doctoral
candidacy.


College Level Academic Skills Test
CLAST is designed to test the communica-
tion and computation skills judged by state
university and community college faculty as
necessary for successful performance and pro-
gression through the baccalaureate level. Pass-
ing scores on the test or satisfaction through
approved alternatives are required by Florida
statutes and the State Board of Education.
The test is administered three times a year to
university students as well as to community
college students who are completing either
Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees
and are seeking admission to programs in state
universities in Florida. Transfer students who
do not satisfactorily complete the test (or its
approved alternatives) will not be admitted.
CLAST also applies to students transferring to
Florida state universities from Florida private
colleges and out-of-state colleges.
Transfer students with fewer than 96 se-
mester hours must have satisfied the CLAST
requirement by the end of the first term of en-
rollment. Transfer applicants with more than 96
hours must have satisfied the CLAST require-
ment before admission to the university.
The Office of Instructional Resources in 1012
Turlington Hall coordinates information and
registration for CLAST. Registration for UF
coursework and awarding of the A.A. certifi-
cate after earning 60 hours are contingent upon
satisfaction of CLAST.

Confidentiality of Student Records
The university assures the confidentiality of
student educational records in accordance with
State University System rules, state statutes and
the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
of 1974, known as the Buckley Amendment.
Directory information on a student that can
be released to the public is limited to name,
class, college and major; dates of attendance;
degrees) earned; honors and awards received;
local, permanent and e-mail addresses; tele-
phone number; most recent previous educa-
tional institution attended; participation in offi-
cially recognized activities and sports; and the
weight and height of members of athletic teams.
Currently enrolled students must contact the
appropriate agency(s) to restrict release of di-
rectory information. The Office of the University
Registrar, the Division of Housing and Univer-
sity Personnel Services routinely release direc-
tory information to the public. In addition to
requesting this restriction from the Office of the
University Registrar, students who live on cam-
pus must also request this restriction from the
Division of Housing (next to Beaty Towers).
Students who are university employees also
must request this restriction from University
Personnel Services.
Student educational records may be released
without a student's consent to school officials
who have a legitimate educational interest to
access the records. "School officials" shall in-
clude:
SAn employee, agent or officer of the univer-
sity or State University System of Florida in


an administrative, supervisory, academic or
research, or support staff position;
Persons serving on university committees,
boards, and/or councils; and
Persons employed by or under contract to
the university to perform a special task, such
as an attorney or an auditor.
"Legitimate educational interest" shall mean
any authorized interest or activity undertaken in
the name of the university for which access to
an educational record is necessary or appropri-
ate to the operation of the university or to ,the
proper performance of the educational mission
of the university.
The university may also disclose information
from a student's educational records without a
student's consent to either individuals or enti-
ties permitted such access under applicable
federal and state law.
Students have the right to review their own
educational records for information and to de-
termine accuracy. A photo I.D. or other equiva-
lent documentation or personal recognition by
the custodian of record will be required before
access is granted. Parents of dependent stu-
dents, as defined by the Internal Revenue Serv-
ice, have these same rights upon presentation of
proof of the student's dependent status.
If a student believes the educational record
contains information that is inaccurate, mis-
leading, or in violation of his or her rights, the
student may ask the institution to amend the
record. The UF Student Guide outlines the pro-
cedures for challenging the content of a student
record as well as the policies governing access to
and maintenance of student records.

Student Records and Transcripts
The Office of the University Registrar main-
tains students' academic records. At the end of
each term of enrollment, students are notified in
writing of their grades, cumulative hours
earned, grade points, probationary status and
degrees earned, if any. Students also can call
TeleGator at (352) 37GATOR (374-2867) or ac-
cess ISIS at http://www.isis.ufl.edu for their
grades.
Transcripts: Upon written request, the univer-
sity will provide academic transcripts for any
student who has attended this university. There
soon may be a charge for each transcript. The
university maintains the right to withhold re-
lease of a transcript if the student has an out-
standing financial obligation to the university.
To reflect a complete academic record for un-
dergraduate, graduate and professional stu-
dents, the university will issue only complete
transcripts.

Transfer Credit Policy
In general students may transfer 60 credit
hours from community colleges as part of the
hours needed for their UF degrees, regardless of
when these hours are earned, but subject to
university and college degree requirements.






STUDENT INFORMATION
t T


Associate of Arts degree recipients from
Florida public community colleges who con-
tinue enrollment at the school that awarded the
A.A. may be granted additional transfer credit
for one or more courses that satisfy their UF
degree requirements.
However, junior and senior level (courses
numbered 3000-4000) course requirements for
the major must be completed at UF or, with
permission of the student's college, at another
baccalaureate degree-granting institution. At
least 25% of semester credit hours must be
earned through instruction at the University of
Florida.
Accreditation by the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools notes that "an adequate
number of hours with appropriate prerequisites
must be required in courses above the elemen-
tary level." The University of Florida interprets
this, based on commonly accepted good prac-
tice, to mean 60 credits in 30004000 level
courses.
Courses completed with grades of D or
higher at other regionally accredited degree-
granting institutions that reasonably parallel the
curriculum at this university will be accepted
for transfer credit as hours earned. It is the pre-
rogative of the student's college to determine
how transfer credit satisfies the specific degree's
course requirements. Students are required to
submit final official transcripts from all institu-
tions attended prior to or during their enroll-
ment at UF. Failure to declare attendance at
another institution can invalidate admission to
UF and any credits or degrees earned.
UF Students Attending Other Schools
Normally, UF students are not permitted to
register at another institution for a course or its
equivalent that is offered at UF.



Auditing Courses: Auditing may be approved
on a space-available basis. In addition to paying
course fees, the approvals of the instructor and
dean of the college offering the course are re-
quired. Immunizations also are required.
Audited courses are not reflected on the aca-
demic transcript. Florida residents sixty years of
age or older are eligible to receive a fee waiver.
Procedures for auditing courses are available
from the Office of the University Registrar. Stu-
dents auditing a course to complete course re-
quirements should refer to the Grades/Grading
Policies section.
Correspondence Work: A student will not be
permitted to register for and work on corre-
spondence courses while pursuing a degree at
the university unless special permission is ob-
tained in advance from their college. The stu-
dent must be in good academic standing and
may not apply more than six semester hours of
correspondence credit toward a UF degree.


Course Load Requirements
The minimum full-time load for all under-
graduate students is 12 credits. The minimum
full-time load for a six-week summer term is
6 credits and the twelve-week summer term is
12 credits. Postbaccalaureate students are con-
sidered undergraduates.
The minimum load for full-time under-
graduate student benefits from the Veterans
Administration or Social Security Administra-
tion is 12 credits for fall and spring, 8 credits for
summer C and 4 credits for the six-week sum-
mer terms. Refer to the Student Affairs section
of the catalog for enrollment requirements for
students receiving financial aid and students
with disabilities.
University regulation allows a maximum
load of 15 credits for a student whose previous
term average was below a C. Some colleges
have differing maximum loads which are stated
in the college sections of this catalog.
Students with college approval may register
for less than the minimum or more than the
maximum load. After late registration, no stu-
dent may drop below the minimum load with-
out successfully petitioning their college dean.
Simultaneous enrollment in correspondence
courses or extension work at another college or
university is counted when computing the
maximum but not the minimum course load.

Dropping Courses
Courses may be dropped or added during
the drop/add period without penalty. After
drop/ add, a course may be dropped up to the
date established in the university calendar. A
grade of W will appear on the transcript.
All drops after the drop/add period must be
completed by the deadline and are subject to the
following restrictions:
No more than two (2) drops will be permit-
ted to students while classified as freshmen
or sophomores. Students who can document
extenuating circumstances may petition their
college for an additional drop.
Approval to drop a course must be obtained.
from the student's college.
After the deadline, students may petition to
drop provided they can document sufficient
reason to drop, usually hardship or medical
condition occurring after the deadline.
Failure to attend a class does not constitute a
drop.

Withdrawals
The Dean of Students Office coordinates
withdrawal procedures. Withdrawal formally
drops all courses in a term. Students who with-
draw after drop/add and before the deadline
for withdrawal will receive a grade of W for all
courses. Any student who withdraws after the
deadline will receive WF grades in all courses
and will be subject to dismissal. Students who
leave UF without withdrawing normally receive
failing grades.


Students on academic probation who with-
draw from UF before the deadline will continue
on probation until their grade point deficit is
reduced to zero. Students on Admissions Com-
mittee probation must meet the terms of their
probation.

Nondegree Registration
Nondegree enrollment is restricted to par-
ticipants in special programs, off-campus pro-
grams, university-affiliated exchange programs,
those participants with nondegree educational
objectives at the university, and high
school/college dual credit enrollment. (Special
regulations govern high school/college dual
enrollment for academically advanced students
in Florida high schools. Refer to Admissions for
additional information.)
Students who have been denied admission
to UF for any term are not eligible for nondegree
registration. Students who have previously
attended UF in a degree-seeking status who did
not subsequently earn a bachelor's degree are
not eligible for nondegree registration.
Visiting Students Attending UF
Undergraduate students in good standing at
another accredited collegiate institution can
enroll full-time at UF as nondegree transient
students to complete work to transfer back to
the parent institution. No evaluation will be
made of work previously completed, and it is
the student's responsibility to secure approvals
required by the parent institution. Certification
to social security and veterans administration
programs also is the responsibility of the stu-
dent, who must request each institution to fur-
nish records.
Nondegree enrollment is subject to the
availability of faculty, space and facilities. No
application for admission is required; forms are
available from the Office of the University Reg-
istrar. Priority for nondegree enrollment is given
to UF employees and to permanent residents of
the Gainesville area.
Nondegree students are subject to the fol-
lowing restrictions:
* Course enrollment requires the approval of
the college at the beginning of each term.
The college of enrollment has the authority
to terminate a nondegree enrollment prior to
registration for any term. Generally, nonde-
gree registration is for one term only.
* Registration is not permitted until the last
two days of the drop/add period and must
be completed by the last day of late registra-
tion; failure to register by that deadline will
result in a late registration fee.
The same grading system is applicable to
degree and nondegree students. Nondegree
credit is not applicable to a UF degree except
by subsequent admission to degree status
and successful petition for application of
such credit. Authorization to enroll as a
nondegree student in no way implies future
approval for admission as a degree-seeking
student.






ACADEMIC REGULATIONS


* Nondegree enrollment status will be denied
any student under suspension/dismissal
from a postsecondary institution or not in
good standing at any institution previously
enrolled, including UF, even if the student
has subsequently attended another institu-
tion. Nondegree students are subject to other
regulations and restrictions imposed by the
college or department in which they wish to
enroll.
Nondegree students taking courses at the
university will be required to register for
and to attend classes under the university
calendar. Nondegree students must pay ap-
propriate UF fees based on course level,
number of credits and residency status.
* Nondegree students must meet state of
Florida immunization requirements.



Students are responsible for satisfying all
academic objectives as defined by the instructor.
Absences count from the first class meeting.
In general, acceptable reasons for absence
from class include illness, serious family emer-
gencies, special curricular requirements (e.g.,
judging trips, field trips, professional confer-
ences), military obligation, severe weather con-
ditions, religious holidays and participation in
official university activities such as music per-
formances, athletic competition or debate. Ab-
sences from class for court-imposed legal obli-
gations (e.g., jury duty or subpoena) must be
excused. Other sound reasons may be offered.
Students may not attend classes unless they
are registered officially or approved to audit
with evidence of having paid audit fees. Fol-
lowing the end of drop/add, the Office of the
University Registrar provides official class
rolls/addenda to instructors.
Students who do not attend at least one of
the first two class meetings of a course or labo-
ratory in which they are registered, and who
have not contacted the department to indicate
their intent, may be dropped from the course.
The department will notify students dropped
from courses or laboratories by posting a notice
in the department office. Students may request
reinstatement on a space-available basis if
documented evidence is presented.
Students must not assume that they will be
dropped if they fail to attend the first few days
of class.
The university recognizes the right of the in-
dividual professor to make attendance manda-
tory. After due warning, professors may pro-
hibit further attendance and subsequently as-
sign a failing grade for excessive absences.

Religious Holidays
The Board of Regents and state law govern
university policy regarding observance of reli-
gious holidays:
* Students, upon prior notification of their
instructors, shall be excused from class or


other scheduled academic activity to observe
a religious holy day of their faith.
Students shall be permitted a reasonable
amount of time to make up the material or
activities covered in their absence.
Students shall not be penalized due to ab-
sence from class or other scheduled aca-
demic activity because of religious obser-
vances.
If a faculty member is informed of or is
aware that a significant number of students are
likely to be absent from his or her classroom
because of a religious observance, a major exam
or other academic event should not be sched-
uled at that time.
Further, a student who is to be excused from
class for a religious holy day is not required to
provide a second party certification of the rea-
sons for the absence. Finally, a student who
believes that he or she has been unreasonably
denied an education benefit due to religious
beliefs or practices may seek redress through the
student grievance procedure.

Illness Policy
Students who are absent from classes or ex-
aminations because of illness should contact
their professors. The student should contact his
or her college by the deadline to drop a course
for medical reasons. After the college petition
deadline, students may petition the University
Senate Committee on Student Petitions to drop

a course for medical reasons. The University's
policy regarding medical excuse notes can be
found in the Student Affairs section of the cata-
log under Student Health Care Center.

Twelve-Day Rule
Students who participate in athletic or extra-
curricular activities are permitted 12 scholastic
day absences per semester without penalty.
(A scholastic day is any day on which regular
class work is scheduled.) Instructors must be
flexible when scheduling exams or other class
assignments.
The 12-day rule applies to individual stu-
dents participating on an athletic or scholastic
team, for example. Consequently, a group's
schedule that requires absence of more than 12
days should be adjusted so that no student is
absent from campus more than 12 scholastic
days.
Students who previously have been warned
for absences or unsatisfactory work should not
incur additional absences, even if they have not
been absent 12 scholastic days. It is the student's
responsibility to maintain satisfactory academic
performance and attendance.

Reading Days
The two days prior to the start of examina-
tions in the fall and spring semesters, generally
a Thursday and Friday, are designated reading
days. No classes or exams are held on these
days; instead, students are encouraged to use
these days for study and review. There are no


reading days in the summer terms because ex-
aminations are given during regular class peri-
ods.

Examination Policies
Final examinations are determined by course
meeting times, except for certain large courses.
No student is required to take more than three
exams in one day. Should that occur, assembly
exams take priority over time-of-class exams.
All changes in the published examination
schedule must be approved by the University
Curriculum Committee via the Office of the
University Registrar.
During-term examinations may be held
during the regular class time or Monday-Friday
(M,T,W,R,F) from 7:00-9:45 p.m. (periods E1-E2)
for the summer terms and Monday-Friday from
8:20-10:10 p.m. (periods E2-E3) for the fall and
spring terms. If other classes are scheduled
during an exam time, instructors must provide
make-up class work for students who miss class
because of an assembly exam.
If two exams are scheduled at the same time,
assembly exams take priority over time-of-
class exams. When two assembly exams or two
time-of-class exams conflict, the course with the
higher number will take priority. Instructors
giving make-up exams will make the necessary
adjustments.




Student grades are recorded permanently by
the Office of the University Registrar.
The word "credit" refers to one semester
hour, generally representing one hour per week
of lecture or two or more hours per week of
laboratory work.

STUDENT INFORMATION


Note: I* ot N* grades recorded on the stu-
dent record indicate the non-punitive initial-
term receipt of an I or NG. A grade of I* or N* is
not considered a failing grade for the term in
which it is received, and it is not computed in
the grade point average. However, if the I* or
N* has not been changed by the end of the next
term for which the student is enrolled, it will be
counted as a failing grade and used in compu-
tation of the grade point average. For purposes
of determining grade point average after the
initial receipt of an I* or N* grade, the three
summer terms are considered collectively as a
single term. I* and N* grades are not assigned to
graduating students; they receive grades of I or
NG.
An incomplete grade may be assigned at the
discretion of the instructor as an interim grade
for a course in which the student has completed
a major portion of the course with a passing
grade, been unable to complete course require-
ments before the end of the term because of
extenuating circumstances, and obtained
agreement from the instructor and arranged for
resolution of the incomplete grade. Instructors
are hot required to assign incomplete grades.
If make-up work requires classroom or labo-
ratory attendance in a subsequent term, the
students should not register for the course
again; instead, the student must audit the course
and pay audit fees (refer to special fees and
charges in the Expenses section of the catalog).
If the make-up work does not require class-
room or laboratory attendance, the instructor
and student should decide on an appropriate
plan and deadline for completing the course.
When the course is completed, the instructor
will submit a change of grade to the registrar's
office. These procedures cannot be used to re-
peat a course for a different grade. (An I grade
should not be assigned to a student who never
attended class; instead, instructors may assign a
failing grade, or no grade at all which will result
in assignment of N*.)

Grade Point Averaging, Deficits
The term "average" refers to the grade point
average for work completed at the university.
Grades received at other institutions are NOT
averaged with grades received at the University
of Florida for the purpose of meeting university
average requirements. Other agencies and hon-
orary societies will compute averages in accor-
dance with their own standards and policies.
Averages are determined by computing the
ratio of grade points to semester hours at-
tempted. For the grade point average computa-
tion formula, please refer to the example below.
A grade point deficit is defined as the num-
ber of grade points below a C average on hours
attempted at the University of Florida. If the
grade point average is less than 2.0, there is a
grade point deficit.
Only grades higher than C will lower a defi-
cit. Every credit of C+ earned removes.5 from a
deficit (a C+ in a three-credit course removes 1.5
deficit points); every credit of B removes 1 defi-


cit point; and every credit of A removes 2 deficit
points.
Computation of a grade point deficit is de-
pendent upon first calculating the grade point
average. Multiply the total UF hours carried for
a grade by 2 (for 2.0 GPA) and subtract the total
grade points earned to determine the deficit. For
instance, if a student has taken 100 hours for a
grade, then 200 grade points are needed for a 2.0
GPA. If there are 196 grade points, there is a 4
point deficit.
Calculating Your Grade Point Average
Multiply grade value times the number of
credit hours for total grade points. Then di-
vide the total number of grade points by the
number of hours attempted. (Exclude hours
attempted under the S/U Option.)

grade point deficit:
11 total credit hours X 2.0 = 22 grade points
necessary for 2.0 GPA
22 16 (total grade points earned) = 6 deficit
points

Repeat Coursework
University of Florida coursework that is re-
peated is counted in the computation of a stu-
dent's UF grade point average as many times as
grades for that course are recorded, although
credit hours will be awarded only once. How-
ever, when a student earns a C or higher in a
course, repeats that course and earns a C or
higher on the subsequent enrollment, the new
grade is not computed into the UF grade point
average nor are additional credits awarded.
Students who entered UF with credit for AP
or IB courses who then repeat the equivalent
course at UF will receive a grade for the UF
course and no credit for the prior work.
Outcomes when repeated coursework involves
only University of Florida coursework:


GPA/Credit
Grades Earned Computation
First grade lower Each grade computed
than a C in grade point aver-
Second grade of C age; credit earned
or higher only once.
First grade lower Each grade computed
than a C in grade point aver-
Second grade lower age; credit earned
than a C only once.
First grade of C Each grade computed
or higher in grade point aver-
Second grade lower age; credit earned
than a C only once.
First grade of C Only first grade
or higher computed in GPA;
Second grade of C credit earned only
or higher for first attempt.

Grades received at other institutions will not
be averaged with grades received at the Univer-
sity of Florida. Repeat coursework taken at the
University of Florida will result in calculation of
only the UF grade in the UF grade point aver-
age, with credit earned only once.

Repeat course equivalencies are identified
based on the state's common course taxonomy.
Refer to the statewide course numbering sys-
tem page at the back of this catalog for the
definition of course equivalencies.
Colleges may not accept grade points and
hours earned from lower level courses, if they
are taken after the student has received
credit/grades for advanced courses or exam
credit in the same field

Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory (S-U)
Grade Option
Subject to college degree program and
department guidelines, students may take elec-
tive coursework and earn grades of S (Satisfac-
tory) or U (Unsatisfactory). Grades earned un-
der the S-U option do not carry grade point

values and are not computed in the University
of Florida grade point average. Such grades are
included in a student's permanent academic
record and are reflected on the transcript. Once
the S-U option is approved, students may not
revert to a letter grade, nor elect the S-U option
after the deadline. Students should note that
other academic institutions and agencies may
interpret a grade of "U" as a failing grade.
Students choosing the S-U option must be in
good standing and may not be on university
academic probation. To elect the S-U option,
students must obtain the approvals indicated on
the form. They may elect the S-U option for only
one course each term; this option is in addition
to courses that are taught only on an S-U basis.
Courses taken to fulfill Gordon Rule may not be
taken S-U.
For fall, spring and summer C terms, the S-U
option deadline is Friday of the third week of
classes. For summer A and summer B terms, the
deadline is Wednesday of the second week of
classes.






Good Standing
The University of Florida has determined
that a student is in good standing if he or she is
eligible to continue or to re-enroll at the univer-
sity, even if on probation.
Colleges may choose not to consider stu-
dents for admission to and may deny continua-
tion in a degree program if they fail to maintain
reasonable academic progress, as specified by
the college or department.
Policies on academic standing, probation
and dismissal are based on the possibility that a
student can overcome academic difficulty and
make appropriate progress toward a degree.

Regulation of Academic Standards
Regulations for academic probation and
dismissal enforce the academic standards of the
university and require the maintenance of grade
point averages and reasonable conformance to a
program of study. Any college may specify
additional academic standards and students are
responsible for observing these regulations.
The probation and dismissal regulations that
apply to undergraduate students also apply to
postbaccalaureate students. All actions taken to
enforce these regulations shall be reflected by
notations on the student's academic record;
some of these notations can be permanent.

Petitions
When an academic regulation appears to re-
sult in undue hardship, students may petition
for waiver of the regulation.
In general, petitions for waiver of an aca-
demic regulation for the current term should be
directed to the school or college in which the
student is enrolled. For example, petitions to


drop or add after the drop/add period should
be presented to the school or college. Exceptions
to the course load regulation are to be presented
to the school or college. Petitions approved by
the school or college must be reported to the
Office of the University Registrar before the
action is official.
All other petitions, including waivers for
prior terms, should be presented to the Office of
the University Registrar, which will refer them
to the University Senate Committee on Student
Petitions. Petitions approved by the committee
will be reflected on the student's transcript.
Detailed information on petition procedures
is available from the student's college or from
the Office of the University Registrar.
The student seeking waiver of a regulation
through petition must remember that no com-
mittee on petitions can direct an instructor to
change a student's grade, nor can the Senate
Committee require any college or school to
grant a degree by waiving any of these regula-
tions.

Ombudsman
The Office of the Ombudsman was estab-
lished by the state legislature. The purpose of
the ombudsman is to help students resolve
problems and conflicts. The office provides an
informal avenue of redress for students' prob-
lems and grievances that arise in the course of
interacting with the institution. By considering
problems in an unbiased way, the ombudsman
works to achieve a fair resolution and to protect
the rights of all parties involved.
When an academic regulation appears to re-
sult in undue hardship, students may petition
for waiver of the regulation. If a student wishes
to appeal a decision of the University Senate
Committee on Student Petitions, he/she may do
so to the university ombudsman in 135 Tigert
Hall.

Probation
The intent of academic probation is to serve
notice formally that a student may not be mak-
ing satisfactory progress. The conditions of
academic probation are intended to specify the
achievement standards required to graduate; to
identify unsatisfactory academic performance at
an early date; to provide occasion for counsel-
ing; and to give students whose ultimate success
is in question further opportunity to demon-
strate their ability to meet academic expecta-
tions.
* Students may be placed on probation by
their college for failure to maintain normal
academic progress in their degree program.
College probation will be removed when the
college determines that satisfactory academic
progress has been demonstrated.
* Undergraduate students with less than a 2.0
cumulative grade point average for Univer-
sity of Florida coursework and a grade point
deficit of fewer than 15 shall be placed on
academic probation.


* Academic probation will be continued for all
undergraduate students as long as they have
a grade point deficit of fewer than 15. It will
be removed when the grade point deficit has
been reduced to zero. Should the grade point
deficit increase to 15 or more, the student
will be dismissed from the university.

Dismissal
Academic dismissal from the university
denies registration privileges to students who
could not graduate if they continued at their
current level of academic achievement.
Academic dismissals identify students whose
performance indicate that they will not fulfill
graduation requirements and encourages
students to leave the university to investigate
other alternatives as soon as a high probability
of failure is evident.
* Students with a grade point deficit of 15 or
more in their University of Florida course-
work shall be dismissed from the university
and their advance registration will be can-
celed. Students who are dismissed cannot
register for a future term until they have
filed an application for readmission by the
deadline and been approved for readmis-
sion.
* Students approved to return to the univer-
sity after an initial dismissal will be placed
on final scholarship probation. If the grade
point deficit is still 15 or more at the end of
the term, students will be dismissed again
with no possibility of registering, except by
readmission or by successful petition to re-
enroll in the Fresh Start Program.
* Any courses, including extension, corre-
spondence and courses taken at another in-
stitution while dismissed from the Univer-
sity of Florida for academic reasons, will not
be counted as credit earned toward a Uni-
versity of Florida degree. However, upon
approved readmission and with the recom-
mendation of the college, a student may ap-
peal to the University Senate Committee on
Student Petitions for acceptance of such
transfer credit.



Associate of Arts Certificate
Although not required, students may receive
an A.A. certificate. The Associate of Arts must
be awarded prior to the bachelor's degree. The
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences awards the
A.A. certificate for the university.
The Associate of Arts certificate will be
awarded upon satisfactory completion of:
* 60 credits (At least 36 of the credits must
have been completed at UF.)
* General education requirements
* An overall C average
* College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST)
or appropriate CLAST waiver
* Required courses in communication and
computation skills (Gordon Rule)





STUDENT INFORMATION


Application forms for the A.A. certificate are
available from and should be returned to the
Office of the University Registrar.
The following requirements apply to under-
graduate degrees:
Application for Degree
Students must file an application for degree
with the Office of the University Registrar by
the deadline. Students must apply in the term in
which they expect to graduate, regardless of
applications in previous terms. All requirements
for the degree must be completed as of the date
of commencement.
Catalog Year
Catalog year determines the set of academic
requirements (general education and the major)
which must be fulfilled for graduation. Students
graduate under the catalog in effect at the time
of their initial undergraduate enrollment as
a degree-seeking student at UF, a Florida pub-
lic community college or other Florida state
institution, provided they maintain continuous
enrollment (registration for and completion of at
least one course for one term in an academic
year).
Students who do not maintain continuous
enrollment will be assigned the catalog in effect
at the time enrollment is resumed. Students
with the approval of their college dean's office
may opt to graduate under the requirements of
a later catalog, but they must fulfill all gradua-
tion requirements from that alternative catalog
year.
The university will make every reasonable
effort to honor the curriculum requirements
appropriate to each student's catalog year.
However, courses and programs will sometimes
be discontinued and requirements may change
as a result of curricular review or actions by
accrediting associations and other agencies.

College Dean's Certification
The dean certifies that all requirements have
been completed and that the student has been
recommended by the faculty.
College Level Academic Skills Test
Students seeking a degree must satisfactorily
complete the College Level Academic Skills
Test.
Completion Deadline To Receive a Degree
* All residence work required for graduation
must be completed at least 24 hours prior to
the scheduled meeting of the college faculty
voting on the candidates for degrees.
* All extension work must be completed at
least two weeks prior to the scheduled
meeting of the college faculty voting on the
candidates for degrees.
Computer Competency
* Competency in the basic use of a computer is
a requirement for graduation. Refer to the
Admissions sections for specific information.


Continuous Enrollment
Undergraduate students who register for
and complete at least one course for one term in
an academic year are continuously enrolled.
Curriculum Requirements
Students must complete all program re-
quirements established by their college, major
department and minor program of study (if
applicable). Minors are awarded only in con-
junction with the receipt of a baccalaureate de-
gree.
Diploma Replacement Fee
Each diploma ordered subsequent to a stu-
dent's initial degree application will result in
assessment of a diploma replacement charge.

Dual Degrees and Multiple Majors
Colleges at their discretion may permit stu-
dents to pursue dual degrees or multiple ma-
jors. A student completing major and college
requirements in two different colleges will re-
ceive two degrees. The transcript will list each
degree and the appropriate majors. A student
completing major and college requirements in
one college and major requirements only in
.another college, will receive a degree from the
first college. The transcript will list the degree
and each major. A student completing multiple
majors that have the same degree, i.e., Bachelor
of Arts or Bachelor of Science, will receive a
single degree. The transcript will list the degree
and each major.
Extension Work Restrictions
* Students may take a maximum of 12 exten-
sion credits during any academic year.
* Students may not take more than 9 extension
credits during a semester.
* No more than 12 of the last 36 credits neces-
sary for a baccalaureate degree may be ex-
tension work.
* Simultaneous registration in on-campus and
extension work requires approval of the
dean of the college.
* No more than one-fourth of the total credit
required for a degree may be extension
work.
* Consult the appropriate section of this cata-
log or consult the dean of the college for
further information.
Foreign Language Requirement
Students seeking a degree must satisfy the
university and department or college (if any)
foreign language requirements. Student must
complete two sequential courses of a foreign
language in secondary school, 8-10 semester
hours at the postsecondary level, or document
an equivalent level of proficiency. In addition, if
required, they must fulfill the requirements of
their major and/or college.

General Education Requirement
All undergraduate students (except those
transferring with an AA from a Florida public


community college or an AA from a Florida
public state university) are required to complete
the 36-hour General Education requirement to
graduate. Refer to the Academic Advising sec-
tion for details of the General Education Re-
quirement. Students may check with their col-
lege to verify their individual degree require-
ments.
Gordon Rule (Communication and
Computation Requirement)
Students must complete with grades of C or
higher designated courses that involve substan-
tial writing for a total of 24,000 words and six
credits of coursework that involve numerical
analyses. Refer to the Gordon Rule (Communi-
cation and Computation Requirement) in the
Academic Advising section.
Grade Point Average
To graduate, students must have a C average
(2.0) or better in all credits required toward the
degree and a C average in all courses attempted
at the University of Florida. College-specific
graduation requirements, in addition to these
minimums, are listed in each college's section.
Pending Charge of Academic Dishonesty or
Student Conduct Violation
No degree will be conferred if a charge of
academic dishonesty or conduct violation is
pending if the penalty could be dismissal, ex-
pulsion, failing grade or any combination of the
above, until the charge is resolved and degree
requirements are met.

Repeat Coursework
Credit will be allowed only once for course-
work which is repeated. In addition, students
who have taken an advanced level course may
not receive credit for completion of a subse-
quent lower level course, as determined by their
college.
Residence Requirements
* The minimum residence requirement for the
baccalaureate degree is two semesters.
* At least 25% of the credit hours applied
toward a degree must be earned while in
residence at the University of Florida.
* Students are required to complete the last
30 credits toward the baccalaureate degree in
residence at the college from which they will
graduate.
Summer Term Enrollment
Students who enter a university in the State
University System with fewer than 60 credits
must earn at least nine credits prior to gradua-
tion during summer terms at State University
System institutions. Credit earned through any
of the study abroad programs sponsored by the
University of Florida during a summer term
counts toward satisfaction of the summer term
enrollment requirement.






ACADEMIC ADVISING


Academic Advising
www.advising.ufl.edu
The University of Florida is committed to
quality academic advising for all students. The
academic advising mission is to assist students
in the attainment of their educational goals.
University Responsibilities: The faculty, ad-
ministration and staff share a responsibility to
provide accurate information and effective ad-
vice. The Office of the Provost is responsible for
providing students, faculty and other advising
staff with accurate information in the catalog,
schedule of courses, Integrated Student Infor-
mation System (ISIS), and other publications.
The Academic Advising Center (100 AAC) is
responsible for acting as an information and
referral center to provide faculty advisers and
undergraduate students with timely and accu-
rate information. In addition, the AAC provides
advice for students interested in post-
baccalaureate professional programs such as
medicine, dentistry and law.
College/School and Department Responsibili-
ties: The dean of each college or school ulti-
mately is responsible for ensuring that academic
advice is available and accessible to all students
within the college or school.
Student Responsibilities: Students ultimately
are responsible for knowing and fulfilling all
university, college and major requirements for
graduation. In order to meet that goal, they are
responsible for:
* attending the summer Preview or other
orientation program to receive advisement
prior to their first term of enrollment;
* meeting with an advisor in the appropriate
college/major upon entrance to a major;
conferring with an advisor on a regular basis
about major options if the student is initially
undecided about a major;
reviewing the tracking (degree) audit mailed
to the student each semester to ensure the
student fully understands the remaining de-
gree requirements;
seeking advisement when in academic diffi-
culty (e.g., below a 2.0 GPA, doing poorly in
a critical tracking course);
maintaining their own personal academic
records, including the catalog of their year of
admission to UF, transcripts, tracking (de-
gree) audits, evaluation of transfer work,
and notes from previous advising sessions.
Students who at any time are confused
about academic requirements or their progress
toward a degree are encouraged and expected
to meet with an advisor.

Universal Tracking
www.isis.ufl.edu
Students are expected to declare a major
upon entering UF as freshmen. Students who
are unsure of their major should declare the
major they feel they will most likely pursue.


Students with no major preference can declare
one of three undecided categories (Humanities
and Letters, Social and Behavioral Sciences, or
Science and Engineering). Students are classi-
fied in the college that offers their desired major,
allowing UF to provide the most appropriate
advising toward the chosen degree. Undecided
students are classified in the College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences.
Universal Tracking (UT) is an automated ad-
vising system that provides students with a
recommended semester-by-semester plan for
each major to guide them toward graduation.
The recommended plan is the optimal path for
completing the degree in four years. The rec-
ommended semester-by-semester plan for each
major appears in the College section of this
catalog.
The goal of Universal Tracking is to help stu-
dents find majors that match their talents and
interests. Therefore, students may change majors
provided they have college approval. Even if
students feel confident about their initial major
choice, they are encouraged to explore other
majors by taking courses in other areas of inter-
est. Usually, most of the courses taken early in
their academic career meet general requirements
that all students must complete, so students who
change majors in the first year usually progress
in a timely fashion. The universal tracking sys-
tem is available on-line on ISIS
(www.isis.ufl.edu, select Universal Tracking).
The "degree shopping" feature in ISIS allows
students to match their academic records to the
degree requirements of other majors so that they
can consider other degree options and determine
what courses they would have to take if they
were to change majors.
Students' progress toward the degree is
monitored each semester to ensure that they are
on track and to provide feedback on their aca-
demic progress (summer terms are not included
in tracking and may be used by students to
'catch up' and get back on track). Each fall and
spring semester, students are mailed a tracking
(degree) audit prior to advance registration for
the next term. Students may also view their
tracking (degree) audit on ISIS
(www.isis.ufl.edu, select Universal Tracking) .
The audit fits the student's courses and grades
into the semester-by-semester plan to show the
student which requirements have been met and
which the student still needs to complete. Using
the audit, the student should be able to tell what
to register for in the next semester to remain on-
track.
Students do not have to complete all of the
recommended courses to remain on track, they
simply have to meet certain minimum require-
ments (known as critical tracking criteria). The
critical tracking criteria usually include a mini-
mum GPA (UF or overall, depending on the
college), completion of certain courses toward
the major (critical tracking courses), and mini-
mum GPA in the critical tracking courses (track-
ing or pre-professional GPA). For most majors,
critical tracking courses are bolded in the se-
mester-by-semester plan in the College section,


and the minimum criteria are listed- below each
semester in the plan. In the audit, critical
tracking courses are preceded by the "<<" sym-
bol.
All incoming freshmen are monitored for
Semester 1 critical tracking criteria, regardless of
the number of hours earned by the student
through dual enrollment and credit by exami-
nation.
A student who is off-track (fails to meet the
minimum criteria for a specific term) is notified
in writing by the university. A hold is placed
on the student's record and the student must
meet with an advisor to 1) determine what is
necessary to get back on track by the end of the
next term, or 2) to change to a more appropriate
major.
If the student is off-track for two consecutive
terms, the student must change to a major more
appropriate to the student's goals and perform-
ance. Off-track students who have selected a
new major should contact the college offering
that major to schedule an appointment with an
advisor to discuss changing the major. The
Academic Advising Center (100 AAC) can help
students identify potential majors and refer
students to the appropriate colleges) for infor-
mation about specific majors.

Accelerated Programs
Combined Bachelor's and Master's Degrees
UF has developed a program for under-
graduates that allows those who qualify aca-
demically to obtain both a bachelor's and mas-
ter's degree. This combined degree program
allows students to double-count graduate courses
toward both an undergraduate and graduate
degree, thus reducing the time it takes to get
both degrees. Qualified students should consult
their department adviser to determine whether
the department offers combined degree pro-
grams and whether they qualify.
Most combined degree programs allow 12-15
hours of graduate coursework (generally) to
apply toward the undergraduate degree. Here
are some advantages of this degree program:
Qualified students can obtain an under-
graduate and a graduate degree in much less
time than two separate degrees.
The cost of both degrees is reduced, for 8-15
credits apply toward both degrees.
Students have time to decide whether to
pursue further graduate or professional
study.
Students' marketability is greatly enhanced;
many professions now require a master's
degree for entry-level positions.
Program provides continuity between un-
dergraduate and graduate studies.
Bright Futures scholarship recipients will not
be funded for the graduate work taken as part
of the undergraduate degree; scholarship recipi-
ents must fund the difference themselves.
Florida PrePaid College Tuition Program
participants will receive funding for the first 120
credit hours. The program will fund graduate






STUDENT INFORMATION


courses taken toward the undergraduate degree
at the undergraduate level.
Combined degree programs allow students
to get a head start on their graduate education
by taking graduate courses throughout the jun-
ior and senior undergraduate years. Financial
aid may be available to assist with the graduate
degree portion of the program.
The Graduate Catalog can provide more in-
formation as well as a complete listing of com-
bined degree program offerings. Other pro-
grams are being developed; refer to department
web sites for new offerings.

Advanced Standing: Credit by
Examination (AICE, AP, IB, CLEP
Exams) and Dual Enrollment
Credit by Examination
A student may participate in several credit
by examination programs to earn credit toward
a degree. Credit received from one exam pro-
gram may not be duplicated by another. A
maximum of 30 semester hours may be granted
by combining AICE, AP, IB and CLEP credit.
Students beginning in the fall or spring term
must have taken the exams and have their
scores reported to the university before enroll-
ing or, at the latest, prior to the end of the first
term of enrollment at UF. Students who begin
in the summer must have taken the exam(s) and
had them reported prior to the end of their first
fall term.
If the student submits appropriate scores, UF
will grant credit and post approximate course
equivalencies to the student's UF transcript
(Course Equivalency charts for AP and IB fol-
low). Credit (AICE, AP, IB, dual enrollment
transfer credit, or UF course credit) will be
awarded only once for the same subject. UF
course credit takes precedence over all other
forms of credit for the same course. Credit
awarded for dual enrollment courses takes
precedence over AICE, AP or IB credit. If dupli-
cate credit exists among AICE, AP or IB, the
exam yielding the most credit will be awarded.
Equivalent courses earned by examination
may be used to fulfill the same requirements
that the UF course fulfills. Students may deter-
mine which courses they will gain credit for
from AP and IB scores by consulting the Course
Equivalency charts that follow. Once the stu-
dent has identified the course numbers that will
be posted to the transcript, the student should
locate the course in the Course Descriptions
section of this catalog. The course description
includes a designation showing whether the
course counts for General Education (Gen Ed)
requirements. AICE, AP, or IB credit counts
toward completion of the General Education
requirement only if the UF course identified on
the equivalency chart awards Gen Ed credit.
Information on Gordon Rule credit is listed in
the text below.


Advanced International Certificate of
Education (AICE) Program
Students completing AICE examinations
should submit to UF official scores as evidence of
completion of a college-level course taken in high
school. Students' scores will be evaluated and, if
they meet minimum requirements, the student
will receive credit for approximate UF course
equivalencies that will appear on the student's
UF transcript.
Advanced Placement Program
Students completing AP examinations
should submit to UF official scores as evidence
of completion of a college-level course taken in
high school. If the results of the examination
meet the requirements listed in the charts below,
the student will receive university credit. The
AP Score-Course Equivalency chart that follows
indicates the approximate UF course equivalen-
cies that will appear on the student's UF tran-
script.
If credit is granted, AP English, history, art
history, government and politics, music theory
and psychology will fulfill 6,000 words of the
communication portion of the Gordon Rule
requirement. AP mathematics, statistics and
computer science count toward Gordon Rule
computation if credit is granted. Scores of 3 or
higher on AP French, German, Latin and Span-
ish fulfill the College of Liberal Arts and Sci-
ences foreign language proficiency requirement.
International Baccalaureate Program
Students completing IB examinations should
submit to UF official scores as evidence of com-
pletion of a college-level course taken in high
school. Students receiving the IB diploma will
receive up to 30 semester hours of credit for
scores of 4 or higher on both higher level and
standard level examinations. Students who do
not receive the IB diploma will receive credit for
scores of 5 or higher on higher level examina-
tions only. The IB Score-Course Equivalency
chart that follows indicates the approximate UF
course equivalencies that will appear on the
student's UF transcript.
If credit is granted, IB English Al or A2,
History, History of Americas, and History of
Europe will count toward the Gordon Rule
communication requirement. IB Computer Sci-
ence, Mathematics, Math Studies, Math Meth-
ods and Advanced Math count toward the
Gordon Rule computation requirement if credit
is granted.
College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Students may receive as many as 30 semester
hours of CLEF credit. CLEP examination scores
must meet the minimums established by the
State University System. CLEP testing is avail-
able on campus periodically and is administered
by the Office of Instructional Resources. Stu-
dents beginning in the fall or spring term must
have taken the exams and have their scores
reported to the university before enrolling or, at
the latest, prior to the end of the first term of
enrollment at UF. Students who begin in the
summer must have taken the exam(s) and had


them reported prior to the end of their first fall
term.
In general, CLEP credit fulfills only a few re-
quirements at UF. CLEP credit may not be used
to fulfill the General Education requirements.
Any student satisfying College Level Examina-
tion Program (CLEP) requirements in mathe-
matics for post-admission exemptions of
coursework shall be allowed to exempt three
hours of Gordon Rule computation.
Students in the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences can use CLEP Spanish, French and
German examinations to meet the college lan-
guage requirement.
Students should consider seriously their de-
cision about taking the CLEP general examina-
tion in English. Experience has shown that those
who score below the 75th percentile are often
handicapped because they have not had college
courses in composition. However, those stu-
dents who do decide to take the CLEP English
examination are required to take the essay op-
tion so that their scores will be based in part on
a writing sample. Regardless of scores, CLEP
English Composition will not fulfill the General
Education composition requirement.
The university awards credit for CLEP ex-
aminations based on the following scaled scores:
Minimum Maximum
Score Semester
CLEP General Required Hours
Examination for Credit Credit
English Comp.
with Essay 500 6
Social Sciences 490 6
Natural Sci. 490
Biology 3
Physical Sci. 3
Humanities 490 6
Mathematics 500 6
Students who score a minimum 490 or
higher on the natural sciences examination will
receive three semester hours of credit in both
biology and physical science.
CLEP Subject Area Examinations: If English
subject examinations (Freshman English or
College Composition) are taken, the essay op-
tion must also be taken. A minimum score en-
sures that the essay portion of the exam is eligi-
ble for review by UF evaluators. This score in
itself does not guarantee that credit will be
awarded; favorable review must be received on
the essay. A minimum score of 51 is required for
College Composition and for Freshman English.
The maximum credit allowed, if the minimum
score is achieved and the essay is acceptable, is
six semester hours.
Department Examinations: Departments
may grant credit to students who perform well
on departmental subject examinations. For spe-
cific information, contact the relevant depart-
ment.
The rules that apply to all transfer credit apply
to dual enrollment work. Consult the Academic
Regulations section of this catalog for complete
information.






ACADEMIC ADVISING


Dual Enrollment
Courses completed with grades of D or
higher at other regionally accredited degree-
granting institutions that reasonably parallel the
curriculum at this university will be accepted
for transfer credit as hours earned. In general,
students may transfer 60 credit hours from
community colleges as part of the hours needed
for their UF degrees, regardless of when these
hours are earned, but subject to university and
college degree requirements. It is the preroga-
tive of the student's college to determine how
transfer credit satisfies the specific degree's
course requirements. Students are required to
submit to Admissions final official transcripts
from all institutions attended prior to or during
their enrollment at UF.
Courses from Florida public community
colleges and State University System schools
generally adhere to the Statewide Course Num-
bering System. If the prefix (first three letters)
and the last three digits of the course number
are the same, then the course is considered
equivalent (see the section on Florida's State-
wide Course Numbering System for more de-
tails). Courses taken at private and out-of-state
institutions need to be evaluated by the stu-
dent's college to determine if they will fulfill
specific requirements.
Equivalent courses will generally fulfill the
same requirements (e.g. General Education) that
the UF course fulfills. However, whether a
course fulfills the Gordon Rule requirement is
determined by specific criteria, not course num-
ber equivalency.

Gordon Rule
Communication
To graduate, students must complete, with
grades of C or higher, courses that involve sub-
stantial writing for a total of 24,000 words.
Courses that count toward this requirement will
be in one of three categories:
coursework with at least 2,000 words
Gordon Rule credit.
coursework with at least 4,000 words
Gordon Rule credit.
coursework with at least 6,000 words
Gordon Rule credit.
The Schedule of Courses identifies the
courses, sections and amount of Gordon Rule
communication credit awarded.
The writing in such courses will be evalu-
ated on effectiveness, organization, clarity and
coherence as well as the grammar, punctuation
and usage of standard written English.
Courses taken to fulfill Gordon Rule re-
quirements cannot be taken S-U. AP examina-
tion credit in English, history, art history, gov-
ernment and politics, music theory and psy-
chology count as 6,000 words toward Gordon
Rule communication requirements.
Computation
Each student must complete, with grades of
C or higher, six credits of coursework in


mathematics, at or above the level of college
algebra: three credits in mathematics and an
additional three credits in mathematics, statis-
tics, computer science, or the logic courses PHI
2100 or PHI 3130. Acceptable course prefixes
include: CAP, CDA, CEN, CGS, CIS, COP, COT,
MAA, MAC, MAD, MAP, MAS, MAT, MGF,
MHF, MTG, PHI and STA.
CGS 3063 may not be used to satisfy this re-
quirement.
Any student satisfying College Level Exami-
nation Program (CLEP) requirements in
mathematics for post-admission exemptions of
coursework shall be allowed to exempt three
hours of mathematics required by this rule.
AP and IB examination credit in math and
computer science count toward Gordon Rule
computation requirements.

General Education Requirement
All undergraduate students (except those
transferring to UF with an AA from a Florida
public community college or an AA from a
Florida public state university) are required to
complete the 36-hour General Education re-
quirement to graduate.
Common collective knowledge about the
world enables us to communicate, to make in-
formed decisions about many aspects of our
lives, to understand and to participate fully as
informed citizens in local, national and global
matters.
By attaining competency in composition, the
humanities, physical and biological sciences,
mathematics and social and behavioral sciences,
we can better understand ourselves, our neigh-
bors, other cultures and times, and the princi-
ples governing the natural world and the uni-
verse. In general education courses, students
gain fresh perspectives, methods and tools for
understanding the traditional and the newly
discovered.
The general education program requires
courses in the following areas:
Area Credits
Composition (C) 3
Mathematical Sciences (M) 6
Humanities (H) 9
Social and Behavioral Sciences (S) 9
Physical (P) and Biological (B) Sciences 9
International /Diversity Focus (I)-
6 credits taken in conjunction with H, S, P or B

Total Credit Requirements:......................... 36
Three of the six credits must be approved
mathematics courses.
Composition
.Composition courses equip students with
the skills necessary to complete successfully the
reading and writing requirements of their disci-
plines. In addition to fulfilling a portion of the
Gordon Rule communication requirement,
composition courses offer instruction in meth-
ods of writing, conventions of standard written
English, reading and comprehension skills, and
ways of making expository and argumentative


prose accessible to readers in varied situations.
These courses are writing-intensive and require
extensive practice, and each writer receives
feedback for revision.
Mathematical Sciences
Courses in mathematical sciences help stu-
dents acquire concepts and skills in logic, in-
ductive and deductive reasoning, and abstract
and quantitative thinking. Students also learn to
reason critically, solve problems creatively,
assess statistical evidence, use technology effec-
tively and form conclusions.
Students must take at least three hours of
approved mathematics courses; the other three
credits can be from approved courses such as
statistics and computer science courses outside
the math department.
Humanities
The humanities requirement enables stu-
dents to think critically about what artists and
thinkers (past and present) have to teach us
about the non-material qualities of human be-
ings and human values. In courses in the arts
and humanities, students become acquainted
with the enduring products-in words, sounds,
paint, stone, metal and many other media-in
which thoughtful and gifted human beings have
attempted to meet our individual and collective
needs for emotional, spiritual and intellectual
fulfillment.
Arts and humanities courses address major
intellectual, cultural and aesthetic achievements.
Students consider questions of ultimate mean-
ing and study human activities, artifacts and
values in the context of the ages in which they
were produced.
Social and Behavioral Sciences
In the social and behavioral sciences, stu-
dents investigate human behavior in its social
context. Students analyze the characteristics and
structure of individuals, families, groups and
institutions to develop an understanding of the
human species. Often using scientific and quan-
titative methods, students examine the proc-
esses and means by which participants in soci-
ety make personal and group decisions.
Natural Sciences -
Physical and Biological Sciences
Courses in the natural sciences introduce
students to the basic concepts of science and the
scientific method and enhance awareness of
scientific developments and their impact on
society and the environment. This area provides
students with an understanding of scientific
terms, concepts and theories, and the ability to
formulate empirically testable hypotheses de-
rived from the study of physical processes and
living things.
International/Diversity Focus
The United States is part of the global com-
munity and is increasingly diverse as a nation.
The international and diversity requirement
provides basic concepts and tools to help stu-
dents understand and appreciate diversity
among people. Courses focus on diversity





STUDENT INFORMATION


among nations (the international component)
and/or within a nation (including the U.S.). The
latter includes differences such as gender, class,
race, ethnicity, sexuality or culture.
Courses meeting this requirement may make
students aware of non-Western influences or
they may immerse students in a culture quite
different from mainstream U.S. culture. These
courses give students new lenses through which
to view, and thereby understand, people and/or
world events. .
Six credits of coursework must have an in-
ternational and/or diversity focus. Courses in
this category will always fulfill another Gen Ed
category as well.
Study abroad courses can apply toward this
six-hour requirement, in addition to fulfilling
credit in other categories. Such courses must be
approved in advance by a department adviser,
certified by the UF International Center (UFIC)
and taken in a foreign setting.
Identifying General Education Courses
All general education courses are identified
at the back of the catalog under department
course listings. General education courses have
a letter designations) after the course entry,
which corresponds to the first letter of the Gen
Ed category. For example: AMH 2010, United
States to 1877, fulfills three credits in the hu-
manities (H) category.
In addition, the Schedule of Courses in-
cludes a list of all courses that fulfill each
category as well as the department that teaches
the course. General education courses are also
designated by code in the Course Listings sec-
tion of the Schedule of Courses (consult the
"G.E." column).
Selecting General Education Courses
Students should choose general education
courses appropriate to their particular major.
Some majors require or recommend specific
general education courses. Refer to the major's
semester-by-semester plan in the College section
of this catalog for specific information. In addi-
tion, students in some colleges may increase
their hours in humanities, social and behavioral
sciences, or physical and biological sciences by
three hours (for a total of 12 hours in that cate-
gory) and take only six hours in either of the
other two categories. Again, students should
refer to the major information in the College
section to determine if this option is available to
them
Students can take courses at the 1000- to
4000- level; in most colleges, students can com-
plete the General Education requirements
throughout their undergraduate experience.
First-year students generally take introductory
classes to complete area requirements. Those
who have the academic background and the
interest can take more advanced classes, but
they should first consult an academic adviser.
Requirements M (mathematical sciences), P
(physical sciences) and B (biological sciences)
include the study of pure science (e.g., physics,
chemistry and calculus) and their technological
applications (e.g., nuclear energy, environ-


mental science and computer theory). Students
should pursue a balanced program of pure and
applied sciences to complete these require-
ments. Students should remember that three of
the six credits for the Mathematical Sciences
requirement must be in approved mathematics
courses.
How Incoming Credits Apply to General
Education
AP or IB credit counts toward completion of
the General Education requirement if the UF
course identified on the equivalency chart
awards Gen Ed credit. AICE credit counts if the
course equivalency granted is a course that
awards Gen Ed credit. CLEP credit may not be
used to satisfy general education requirements.
Dual enrollment and other transfer credit
will fulfill the General Education requirements
that the same UF course fulfills if the course is
equivalent. Courses from Florida public com-
munity colleges and State University System
schools generally adhere to the Statewide
Course Numbering System. If the prefix (first
three letters) and the last three digits of the
course number are the same, then the course is
considered equivalent (see the section on Flor-
ida's Statewide Course Numbering System for
more details). If the course does not have a
common-numbered equivalent at UF (either
because UF does not offer the course or because
the transfer course was not taken in the state
system), then the student's college needs to
evaluate the course to determine whether it
fulfills a General Education area requirement.

Required Placement Examinations
Several courses commonly taken by incom-
ing students require placement. Placement en-
sures that students enroll in courses appropriate
for their level of preparation and increases their
likelihood of success in those subjects. The
courses requiring placement include English
Composition, Calculus I, General Chemistry,
and courses in French, German, Latin and
Spanish.
Students should read the information below
carefully to determine if they will need to take a
placement exam for that subject.
Since all students are required to complete
the General Education composition require-
ment, everyone should review the information
on English Composition. For the other courses
requiring placement, students should first de-
termine if they will want or need to take those
courses. There are three basic reasons for a stu-
dent to enroll in these courses:
1) The courses) are required for major or col-
lege requirements.
2) The courses) are required or recommended
for a non-major program the student wishes
to pursue (for example, Calculus is required
by medical schools, even though the stu-
dent's major may not require it).
3) The student has a desire to study one of
those areas even though the student is not
planning to major in it.


To verify if the major or college requires a
Calculus (MAC 2233 or 2311) or General Chem-
istry (CHM 2040 or CHM 2045) course, students
should review the information on the major in
the College section of this catalog. (For students
unsure which college offers their major, please
consult the index of majors at UF). College-level
foreign language is required by only two col-
leges (Liberal Arts and Sciences requires lan-
guage proficiency; in Journalism and Commu-
nications, students may choose language profi-
ciency as an option).
Pre-health students (students interested in
attending medical, optometry, dental or veteri-
nary school after graduating from UF) need to
complete Calculus and General Chemistry to be
admissible to those programs.
English Composition
Most students take a 1000- or 2000-level
English course during their first year to meet the
General Education requirement (unless a stu-
dent enters UF with college-level credit for
composition through AP, IB, or dual enroll-
ment). Students are placed into these courses on
the basis of their SAT or ACT Verbal score.
Students with a score of 640 or lower on the
Verbal section of the SAT exam or a score of
28 or lower on the Verbal section of the ACT
exam should enroll in ENC 1101.
Students with a score of 650 or higher on the
Verbal section of the SAT exam or a score of
29 or higher on the Verbal section of the
ACT exam may not enroll in ENC 1101, but
may enroll in any other 1000- or 2000-level
English course (except those with a prereq-
uisite other than ENC 1101).
No further placement is required, although
SAT II Writing, AP and IB scores may also be
used for placement. Consult the charts that
follow if you have AP, IB or SAT II scores.
Calculus I
Students wishing to enroll in Calculus I (ei-
ther MAC 2233 or MAC 2311) must demonstrate
appropriate background before they may enroll
in either course. Students who have completed
MAC 1147 (Precalculus Algebra and Trigo-
nometry) with a C or better may enroll in either
Calculus I course. An AP score may also pro-
vide placement into Calculus I. Students who
have AP scores should consult the AP place-
ment charts that follow. IB exams do not pro-
vide adequate assessment of a student's back-
ground for enrollment in Calculus I.
Students who wish to enroll in Calculus I
who have not completed MAC 1147 (and do not
have appropriate AP scores) must take and pass
the SAT II Math Level II-C exam. (Consult the
SAT II Placement chart that follows for mini-
mum scores for enrollment in MAC 2233 and
MAC 2311.) No placement is required for en-
rollment in MAC 1147 (Precalculus) or other
lower math courses.
Students wishing to enroll in Calculus II
must have credit for MAC 2311 (if credit for
MAC 2311 is earned through AP, consult the






ACADEMIC ADVISING


charts below for recommended course in which
to register).
General Chemistry
The first course in the General Chemistry se-
quences (CHM 2040 or CHM 2045) requires
placement to enroll. There are two General
Chemistry sequences: CHM 2040-2041-2045L-
2046-2046L and CHM 2045-2045L-2046-2046L.
Each sequence meets the pre-professional re-
quirement for a broad range of science and
engineering majors. Both sequences presume
students have a functional command of high
school chemistry and Algebra II. 1000-level
Chemistry courses (CHM 1083 and CHM 1020)
do not require any placement (and completion
of these courses does not provide placement for
2000-level Chemistry courses).
Students' SAT II Chemistry or SAT Quanti-
tative scores may be used to place them in CHM
2040 or 2045. Students may wish to take the
SAT II Chemistry examination as it may provide
a better assessment of their background.
Students with a score of 640 or lower on the
Quantitative section of the SAT exam or a 28
or lower on the Quantitative section of the
ACT exam should enroll in CHM 2040.
Students with a score of 650 or higher on the
Quantitative section of the SAT exam or a 29
or higher on the Quantitative section of the
ACT exam should enroll in CHM 2045.
Students who do not place into CHM 2045
based on SAT or ACT Quantitative score may
choose to take and pass the SAT II Chemistry
exam to enroll in CHM 2045. AP or IB scores
may also provide placement into CHM 2040 or
2045. Consult the charts that follow if you have AP,
IB or SAT II scores.
Students wishing to enroll in CHM 2047
must show AP or IB credit for Chemistry and a
very high SAT II placement score, and get the
approval of the Chemistry department or the
honors office.
Foreign Languages: French, German, Latin,
Spanish
Students who want to continue studying the
same foreign language they studied high school
must demonstrate placement. Majors in the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences must com-
plete a foreign language requirement; students
in the College of Journalism may choose to meet
college requirements with the study of foreign
language. In general, language placement is
determined by a combination of placement
scores and high school background in the lan-
guage.

Pre-professional Programs
Pre-Law
www.advising.ufl.edu/prelaw
Although there is no pre-law major at the
University of Florida, most law schools agree
that a broad, liberal, diverse, and challenging
education is the best preparation for law school.
Taking difficult courses from demanding in-
structors is the best generic preparation for legal


education. Pre-law students must develop
analytic and problem-solving skills, critical
reading abilities, writing skills, oral communi-
cation and listening abilities, research skills, and
organization and priority management skills. In
short, pre-law students should register for de-
manding courses that challenge them to read,
write, and think critically.
Pre-law students are encouraged to consult
the pre-law web site which is located at,
www.advising.ufl.edulprelaw. After reviewing
the web site, students should attend pre-law
group advising sessions and workshops. In the
junior year, students are invited to make indi-
vidual advising appointments with the Pre-law
advisor in the Academic Advising Center.
Pre-law students are encouraged to carefully
assess their interest in and motivation for at-
tending law school. The pre-law timeline, fea-
tured on the web site, encourages students to
"shadow" attorneys, conduct informational
interviews, complete internships, and speak to
admissions officers to learn about law schools
and the legal profession. Students should also
consider studying overseas, writing an honors
thesis, and completing an internship. These
activities will enhance the depth and value of
their undergraduate education and may also
distinguish them from other top law school
applicants.

Pre-Health
www.advising.ufl.edu/prehealth
Students intending to go to medical, dental,
veterinary medical, optometry, podiatry or
chiropractic school may choose almost any ma-
jor; however, these students should not pursue
majors that prepare them for specific health
professions such as therapeutic recreation,
physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing
or pharmacy.
Pre-health students should plan to complete
the following courses. It is important to note
that some health professions do not require all
of these courses, and some require more. Also,
requirements vary from program to program, so
students should carefully investigate the re-
quirements of the institutions to which they
plan to apply.
Mathematics: At least two semesters of college-
level mathematics; one semester of calculus
(MAC 2311 or 3472) is recommended. Some
medical schools stipulate additional calculus
courses.
General Chemistry: CHM 2040-2041-2046 and
CHM 2045L-2046L; or CHM 2045-2046 and
2045L-2046L; or CHM 2050-2051 and CHM
2045L-2046L; or CHM 2047 and 2047L.
Organic Chemistry: CHM 2210-2211 and 2211L;
or CHM 2215-2216 and CHM 2215L-2216L;
or CHM 3217-3218 and CHM2211L.
Biochemistry: One semester is recommended by
most professional schools and required by
many medical schools. BCH 4024 or CHM
4207.


Physics: PHY 2053-2054 and PHY 2053L-2054L;
or PHY 2048-2049 and PHY 2048L-2049L.
Biology: BSC 2010-2011 and BSC 2010L-2011L.
English: At least two semesters at the college
level. Some medical schools require three
courses in English with emphasis on compo-
sition. Many medical schools do not stipu-
late whether their English requirements are
for composition or literature courses, but
composition courses are recommended to
strengthen communication skills and help
prepare for admission tests.
Additional Course Requirements: Pre-
veterinary students should take:
ASG 3003C Intro. to Animal Science
ASG 3402 Principles of Animal Nutrition
PCB 3063Genetics
MCB 3020-3020L Basic Biology of Microorgan-
isms and Lab
STA 2023 Introduction to Statistics
Pre-optometry students should take:
PSY 2013 General Psychology, plus an addi-
tional psychology course
MCB 3020-3020L Basic Biology of Microorgan-
isms and Lab
STA 2023 Intro. to Statistics
Also recommended are
PET 2320C Applied Human Anatomy
PET 2350C Applied Human Physiology
Pre-dental students are encouraged to take
additional courses in the following:
MCB 3020-3020L Microbiology
PSY 2013 General Psychology
DEP 3053 Developmental Psychology
PCB 3063 Genetics
PCB 5235, Immunology.
and courses in other social and behavioral
sciences.
All students considering medical, dental,
veterinary medical, optometry, podiatry or
chiropractic school should review the Health
Professions Handbook, available online at
http://www.advising.ufl.edu/prehealth.
Students also are encouraged to attend
workshops offered by the Academic Advising
Center. Health profession workshops for first-
and second-year students are offered in the fall
semester. Application workshops are offered in
the spring for students who are about to apply
to a professional school. An interview workshop
is offered early in the fall for those who have
already applied. For more information on work-
shops or to meet with a pre-health professions
adviser, contact the Academic Advising Center.

Honors Program
www.honors.ufl.edu
This is an invitation-only program for stu-
dents who have shown potential for superior
academic performance. After admission to the
university, invitations are sent to all students
who have scored 1350 or above on the SAT (test






STUDENT INFORMATION

taken after March 1995) or 30 composite on the
ACT. Honors program candidates also must
have an academic high school grade point aver-
age of 3.9 or higher, as computed by the univer-
sity. Honors program students are eligible for
special honors classes and housing in an honors
dormitory.
To remain in the program, students must en-
roll in at least one honors course each semester
until they achieve junior standing (60 or more
earned hours) or complete four semesters and
maintain an overall grade point average of 3.0.
For more information, explore the honors web
site.
Students who do not qualify may apply for
the program after demonstrating their academic
capabilities during the fall semester of their first
year. Honors requirements are not in addition to
general education requirements, but may be
used to satisfy these requirements. The small
classes and the academic ability of the students
make possible more thorough inquiry into
course materials and more independent work.
Students enhance their skills through extensive
reading, writing and oral presentations.
Students who satisfy the honors program re-
quirements with a 3.0 overall average and com-
plete the general education requirement by 60
semester hours of credit will receive the Associ-
ate of Arts certificate with honors. Those with a
3.5 overall grade point average will receive the
certificate with high honors.
After the sophomore year, the honors pro-
gram becomes the responsibility of the depart-
ment in which the student pursues a major.
Honors programs within each college lead to a
baccalaureate degree with honors, high honors
or highest honors.

President's Honor Roll
Students who achieve a perfect 4.0 GPA with
at least 12 hours of graded academic course-
work (no S-U) in the fall or spring semesters will
receive recognition on the President's Honor
Roll. Each student so honored will receive the
President's Honor Roll certificate.

STUDENT INFORMATION


Frequently Asked Questions About Universal Tracking


What is universal tracking?
* Universal tracking is a degree audit system, which provides a recommended semester-by-semester enrollment plan that includes certain 'critical'
courses.
* 'Critical' courses must be completed with the required GPA during the semester in which they are indicated in order to be On Track for the designated
major.


What is the purpose of universal tracking?
* The purpose of Universal tracking is to allow students the freedom to explore majors and to receive feedback on their progress in the major in order to
find the best academic path to complete their degree.


How does UT help students find the best major?
* UT evaluates the students' academic progress each fall and spring term of enrollment.
* UT HOLDS impede registration and require students to consult with an advisor prior to registering.
* Advisors assist students in finding majors appropriate to their talents and interests.


How can a student find out what the tracking criteria are for other majors?
* Access ISIS (www.isis.ufl.edu) to explore the requirements for different majors.
* Speak with an adviser in the college that offers the majors.
* Speak with an advisor in the Academic Advising Center (AAC).
* View the semester-by-semester plans for each major in the college section of the Undergraduate catalog.


How are students notified that they are OFF Track?
* Universal Tracking audits are mailed prior to advance registration during the fall and spring semesters to each student with a valid current address on
file with the Office of Registrar. If the student is OFF Track a UT HOLD will print in the top portion of the audit.
A letter notifies students who receive UT HOLDS at the end of the semester due to poor academic performance.


How does the UT HOLD affect students?
UT HOLDS prevent a student from advance registering without first consulting with an advisor to develop an academic plan to complete the 'critical'
courses to get back on track for their major.
UT HOLDS applied at the end of the term for poor academic performance two consecutive semesters require the student to see an advisor prior to the
next term of enrollment to select a new major and avoid cancellation of enrollment.


How many terms can a student be OFF Track for the same major?
A student OFF Track for two consecutive terms must see an advisor to select a more appropriate major.


How does a student change majors?
Contact the advising office of the college that offers the major in which you wish to be reclassified.


What other resources are available to assist students in selecting a new major?
Academic Advising Center Advisers will discuss with you the various majors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences as well as in other colleges.
The Counseling Center, located in 301 Peabody Hall, 392-1575, (www.counsel.ufl.edu).

Residency:
Classification of Students-
Florida or Non-Florida
(Section 6C-7.005, Florida Administrative
Code)
The deadline for applying for a change in resi-
dency status with all documentation is
each term's fee payment deadline.
(1) For the purpose of assessing tuition, resi-
dency and nonresidency status shall be deter-
mined as provided in Section 240.1201, Florida
Statutes, and the Florida State University Sys-
tem Residency Policy and Procedure Manual
(Revised Effective March 5, 1993), incorporated
by reference herein.

(2) An individual shall not be classified as a
resident for tuition purposes and, thus, shall not
be eligible to receive the resident tuition rate,
until the individual has provided satisfactory
evidence as to his or her legal residence and
domicile to appropriate university officials. In
determining residency, the university shall
require evidence such as a voter registration,
driver's license, automobile registration, loca-
tion of bank account, rent receipts or any other
relevant materials as evidence that the applicant
has maintained 12 months residence immedi-
ately prior to qualification as a bona fide domi-
cile, rather than for the purpose of maintaining a
mere temporary residence or abode incident to
enrollment in an institution of higher learning.
To determine if the student is a dependent child,
the university shall require evidence such as
copies of the aforementioned documents. In
addition, the university may require a notarized
copy of the parent's IRS return. "Resident stu-
dent" for tuition purposes classification shall
also be construed to include students to whom
an Immigration Parolee card or a Form 1-94
(Parole Edition) was issued at least one year
prior to the first day of classes for which resi-
lent student status is sought, or who have had
heir resident alien status approved by the
United States Immigration and Naturalization
Service, or who hold an Immigration and Natu-
:alization Form 1-151, 1-551 or a notice of an
approved adjustment of status application, or
_uban Nationals or Vietnamese Refugees or
otherr refugees or asylees so designated by the
United States Immigration and Naturalization
servicee who are considered as Resident Aliens,
)r other legal aliens, provided such students
neet the residency requirements stated above
md comply with subsection (4) below. The
,urden of establishing facts which justify classi-
ication of a student as a resident and domicili-
iry entitled to "resident for tuition purposes"
registrationn rates is on the applicant for such
classification .


RESIDENCY


(3) In applying this policy:

(a) "Student" shall mean a person admitted to
the institution, or a person allowed to reg-
ister at the institution on a space available
basis.
(b) (b) "Domicile" shall denote a person's true,
fixed, and permanent home, and to which
whenever the person is absent the person
has the intention of returning.

(4) In all applications for admission or registra-
tion at the institution on a space available basis
a "resident for tuition purposes" applicant, or, if
a dependent child, the parent of the applicant,
shall make and file with such application a
written statement, under oath, that the applicant
is a bona fide resident and domiciliary of the
State of Florida, entitled as such to classification
as a "resident for tuition purposes" under the
terms and conditions prescribed for residents
and domiciliaries of the State of Florida. All
claims to "resident for tuition purposes" classi-
fication must be supported by evidence as
stated in Rule 6C-7.005(1),(2) if requested by the
registering authority.

(5) A "non-resident" or, if a dependent child, the
individual's parent, after maintaining a legal
residence and being a bona fide domiciliary of
Florida for twelve (12) months, immediately
prior to enrollment and qualification as a resi-
dent, rather than for the purpose of maintaining
a mere temporary residence or abode incident to
enrollment in an institution of higher education,
may apply for and be granted classification as a
"resident for tuition purposes"; provided, how-
ever, that those students who are non-resident
aliens or who are in the United States on a non-
immigration visa will not be entitled to reclassi-
fication. An application for reclassification as a
"resident for tuition purposes" shall comply
with provisions of subsection (4) above. An
applicant who has been classified as a "non-
resident for tuition purposes" at time of original
enrollment shall furnish evidence as stated in
Rule 6C-7.005(1) to the satisfaction of the regis-
tering authority that the applicant has main-
tained residency in the state for the twelve
months immediately prior to qualification re-
quired to establish residence for tuition pur-
poses. In the absence of such evidence, the ap-
plicant shall not be reclassified as a "resident for
tuition purposes." It is recommended that the
application for reclassification be accompanied
by a certified copy of a declaration of intent to
establish legal domicile in the state, which intent
must have been filed with the Clerk of the Cir-
cuit Court, as provided by Section 222.17, Flor-
ida Statutes. If the request for reclassification
and the necessary documentation is not received
by the registrar prior to the last day of registra-
tion for the term in which the student intends to


be reclassified, the student will not be reclassi-
fied for that term.

(6) Appeal from a determination denying "resi-
dent for tuition purposes" status to applicant
therefore may be initiated after appropriate ad-
ministrative remedies are exhausted by the
filing of a petition for review pursuant to Sec-
tion 120.68 F.S.

(7) Any student granted status as a "resident for
tuition purposes," which status is based on a
sworn statement which is false shall, upon de-
termination of such falsity, be subject to such
disciplinary sanctions as may be imposed by the
president of the university.

STUDENT INFORMATION


Fees and Other Fiscal
Information

Application Fee
Each application for admission to the univer-
sity must be accompanied by a nonrefundable
application fee of $20.
Enrollment and Student Fees
Pursuant to Section 6C-7.001 (2) Florida Ad-
ministrative Code, registration shall be defined
as consisting of two components: a) formal se-
lection of one or more credit courses approved
and scheduled by the university; and b) tuition
payment, partial or otherwise, or other appro-
priate arrangements for tuition payment (in-
stallment payment, deferment or third-party
billing) for the courses in which the student is
enrolled as of the end of the drop/add period.
Registration must be completed on or before
the date specified in the university calendar.
Students are not authorized to attend class un-
less they are on the class roll or have been ap-
proved to audit. Unauthorized class attendance
will result in fee liability.
Fee Liability-A student is liable for all fees
associated with all courses in which he/she is
registered at the end of the drop/add period or
which he/she attends after that deadline. The
fee payment deadline is 3:30 p.m. at the end of
the second week of classes.
Assessment of Fees-Pursuant to Section 6C-
7.002(5), Florida Administrative Code: resident
and nonresident tuition shall be assessed on the
basis of course classification: tuition for courses
numbered through 4999 shall be assessed at the
undergraduate level, courses numbered 5000
and above shall be assessed at the graduate
level. Students must assess and pay their own
fees. Lack of written notification of the tuition
fee debt does not negate the student's responsi-
bility to pay by the published deadline. Univer-
sity personnel will not be held accountable for
assessment or accuracy of calculations. Tuition
fee rates are available from University Fi-
nancial Services.
Health, Athletic, Activity and Service and
Material and Supply Fees
Health Fee-All students must pay a health fee
that is assessed on a per credit hour basis and is
included in the basic rate per credit hour. The
health fee maintains the university's Student
Health Service and is not part of any health
insurance a student may purchase.
Athletic Fee-All students must pay an athletic
fee per credit hour each term. Half-time gradu-
ate research and teaching assistants enrolled for
eight or more credit hours during the fall or
spring semesters and all other students enrolled
for nine or more credits can purchase athletic
tickets at the student rate.
Activity and Service Fee-All students must
pay an activity and service fee that is assessed
per credit hour and is included in the hourly
tuition rate.
Material and Supply Fee-Material and supply
fees are assessed for certain courses to offset the
cost of materials or supply items consumed in
1-40


the course of instruction. Material and supply
fee information is available from the academic
departments or University Financial Services.
Late Registration/Payment Fees
Late Registration Fee (6C-7.003(4), Florida Ad-
ministrative Code)-Any student who fails to initi-
ate registration during the regular registration
period will be subject to the late registration fee of
$100.
Late Payment Fee (6C-7.003(5), Florida Ad-
ministrative Code)-Any student who fails to
pay all fees or to make appropriate arrange-
ments for fee payment (deferment or third party
billing) by the deadline will pay a late payment
fee of $100.
Waiver of Late Fees-A student who believes
that a late charge should not be assessed because
of university error or extraordinary circumstances
that prevented all conceivable means of compli-
ance by the deadline may petition for a waiver.
Late Registration Fee: University Registrar
Late Payment Fee: Financial Services
The university may require documentation.
Repeat Course Fee
Beginning Fall 1997, any undergraduate
course numbered 1000-4999 at the university
(excluding individual study, courses numbered
X900-X999, courses dropped or withdrawn with-
out fee liability, cooperative education courses,
military science courses with prefixes AFR, MIS
and NSC and courses approved for multiple reg-
istrations) for which a student registers three or
more times will be subject to a repeat course fee at
100% of the full cost of instruction, calculated
annually. All students, regardless of classification
or residency status, will be assessed the fee. Any
courses taken prior to fall 1997 are excluded.
Special Fees and Charges
Audit Fee-Fees for audited courses are the
same as the credit hour fee charged to Florida
residents for tuition purposes.

ida Administrative Code)-Each diploma or-
dered after a student's initial degree application
will result in a diploma replacement charge.

sity can refuse three-party checks, altered checks
and checks that will not photocopy.

requirements, including advance payment or
security deposit. All financial obligations to the
university will be applied on the basis of age of
the debt. The oldest debt will be paid first.

versity does not have the authority to waive late
fees unless the university primarily is responsi-
ble for the delinquency or that extraordinary
circumstances warrant such waiver.

sity may cancel the registration of any student
who has not paid any portion of his/her fee






FEES AND OTHER FISCAL INFORMATION


liability by the deadline and has not attended
class after the drop/add deadline. The univer-
sity will suspend further academic progress by
placing a financial hold on the student's record
to prevent the release of grades, schedules, tran-
scripts, registration, diplomas, loans, the use of
UF facilities and/or services, and admission to
UF functions and athletic events until the ac-
count has been settled in full.
Reinstatement shall require the approval of
the university and payment of all delinquent
liabilities, including the late registration and late
payment fees. Upon payment of fees, it is the
student's responsibility to ensure that his or her
registration is updated.
Deferral of Registration and Tuition Fees-A
fee deferment allows students to pay fees after
the deadline without cancellation of registration
or late payment fee. The university may award
fee deferments in the following circumstances:
Students whose state or federal financial
assistance is delayed due to circumstances
beyond the student's control.
* Students receiving veterans educational
assistance benefits.
* Students for whom formal arrangements
have been made with the university for
payment by an acceptable third-party donor.
Deferment covers tuition fee payments only
and must be established by the fee payment
deadline. Fee deferments are granted based on
information from the Office for Student Fi-
nancial Affairs (financial aid deferments) or the
Office of the University Registrar (veterans).

crease direct costs can include TBA (to be ar-
ranged), computer courses, laboratory
courses, individualized courses, internships,
and dissertation and master's thesis courses.
Intern supervisors for institutions within the
State University System may be given one non-
transferable certificate (fee waiver) for each full
academic term during which the person serves
as an intern supervisor. The certificate is valid
for three (3) years from the date of issuance. The
maximum hours allowed during a single se-
mester will be six (6) hours of instruction (in-
cluding credit through continuing education).
The certificate will waive the matriculation fee;
the student must pay the balance of the fees by
the deadline.
Florida public high school students who
earn credit in courses toward a high school
diploma and baccalaureate degree, as pro-


vided by dual credit enrollment or early
admission, are entitled to a full waiver of
undergraduate fees. Books and instructional
materials may be provided on a lend-retum
basis.

sician, that completion of the semester is
precluded.
Exceptional circumstances, upon approval of
the university president or his designee(s).
A refund of 25 percent of the total fees paid
(less late fees) is available if notice of with-
drawal from the university with written docu-
mentation is received from the student and
approved prior to the end of the fourth week of
classes for full semesters or a proportionately
shorter period of time for the summer terms.
Refunds must be requested at University Fi-
nancial Services. Proper documentation must be
presented when a refund is requested. A wait-
ing period may be required. Refunds will be
applied against any university debts.
Tuition refunds due to cancellation, with-
drawal or termination of attendance for students
receiving financial aid will first be refunded to the
appropriate federal Title IV program. Any re-
maining refund then will be returned to the stu-
dent.

than personal checks, to meet their immediate
needs. Personal checks will be accepted at Uni-
versity Financial Services for the exact amount
of fees and/or other amounts owed the univer-
sity. Payments on all financial obligations to the
university will be applied on the basis of age of

are payable at University Financial Services at the
time such charges are incurred. Graduating students
with outstanding financial obligations will have a
hold placed on their records withholding release of a
diploma, transcript and other university services until
the debt is satisfied.
University regulations prohibit registration,
graduation, granting of credit, release of tran-
script or diploma for any student whose account
with the university is delinquent. Delinquent
accounts, including those debts for which the
students' records have a financial hold, may re-
quire payment by cash, cashier's check or
money order.
Delinquent debts can result in placement
with a collection agency without further notice,
at which time additional collection costs will be
assessed.

Fisher School of

Accounting
www.cba.ufl.edu/fsoa
Accounting has been one of the basic aca-
demic programs at the University of Florida for
more than 60 years. In 1977, the School of Ac-
counting was established as a separate school
within the College of Business Administration
by the Board of Regents and was endowed in
1985 through the generosity of alumnus Fre-
derick E. Fisher. The Fisher School's primary
mission is to provide a professional program
within which students develop the knowledge,
learning capabilities, professionalism, interper-
sonal skills and adaptability necessary to as-
sume 'leadership roles in a changing profes-
sional and business environment. The school's
degree programs are consistently ranked in the
top ten in the nation by various academic and
professional surveys. Most recently (1999), the
graduate and undergraduate programs were
ranked sixth and twelfth respectively by the
Public Accounting Report.

Programs
All Fisher School of Accounting programs
are fully accredited by the American Assembly
of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The
school was one of the first in the country to meet
the new accreditation standards for all of its
accounting programs. UF's undergraduate and
graduate programs in accounting and business
were re-accredited by AACSB in April 1998.
The school offers the Bachelor of Science in
Accounting (B.S.Ac.) and Master of Accounting
(M.Acc.) and coordinates the accounting con-
centration for the Ph.D. in business administra-
tion. The Fisher School of Accounting and the
College of Law offer a program of study leading
to the joint awarding of the Juris Doctorate and
M.Acc. degrees (D/M.Acc.).
Students who choose to complete the four-
year undergraduate program will receive the
Bachelor of Science in Accounting. These gradu-
ates will have the requisite accounting, business
and general education to pursue a variety of
career opportunities in accounting and business
and to apply to graduate and professional de-
gree programs in accounting, business or law.
Students wishing to prepare for a profes-
sional career in accounting should complete the
five-year 3/2 program, which results in the joint
awarding of the Bachelor of Science in Ac-
counting and the Master of Accounting upon
satisfactory completion of the 152-hour pro-
gram. The recommended entry point into the
3/2 program is the beginning of the senior year.
Interested students are encouraged to take the
GMAT in their junior year.
The 3/2 program allows the student to con-
centrate in an accounting specialty; it also pro-
vides knowledge of basic accounting and busi-
ness and related disciplines. Details concerning
the 3/2 program, including the specializations


in financial/auditing, systems or tax, are in-
cluded in the Graduate Catalog, which can be
obtained by writing the Office of Admissions,
Box 114000, University of Florida, Gainesville,
FL 32611-4000. Additional information also is
available from the Fisher School of Accounting,
Box 117166, University of Florida, Gainesville,
FL 32611-7166.
Prospective students should know about the
five-year post-secondary education requirement
to sit for the Certified Public Accountants ex-
amination in the state of Florida. Contact the
Florida Board of Accountancy, 2610 NW 43rd
Street, Suite 1A, Gainesville, FL 32606.

Faculty
The Fisher School of Accounting has 15 fac-
ulty members, with Ph.D. degrees from the
nation's leading universities. The faculty is
committed to excellence in teaching, research
and service. In addition to publishing the
school's own research journal, the faculty ac-
tively contribute to the accounting profession by
maintaining editorial positions for major ac-
counting journals, participating in professional
organizations at the national and state levels
and providing services to major corporations
and public accounting firms.

Student Organizations
Beta Alpha Psi
This honorary accounting fraternity has 115
chapters nationwide. Upsilon Chapter at UF
was the 18th chapter founded (in 1938) and is
recognized as one of the best chapters in the
country.
An active professional program to promote
professional awareness is conducted by Beta
Alpha Psi each year, including guest speakers,
panel discussions, field trips and other activi-
ties. Beta Alpha Psi co-sponsors the Graduate
Accounting Conference, which annually attracts
more than 200 accounting practitioners, and co-
sponsors the spring banquet.
Beta Alpha Psi accepts applications for
membership every semester. Membership re-
quirements include high ethical standards and a
minimum grade point average. Scholastic re-
quirements in Beta Alpha Psi include:
Undergraduate:
* Completion of at least 12 hours of 3000-level
or above accounting courses at UF with a
cumulative 3.2 average in these courses; and
* A 3.0 cumulative average for all work com-
pleted in the junior and senior years at UF.
Graduate:
* For membership, a graduate student must
have completed at least one 5000-level or
higher accounting course.
* A 3.1 cumulative average in 5000-level or

pleted in the junior and senior years at UF.


Fisher School of Accounting Council
The Fisher School of Accounting Council
(FSOAC) is part of the campus-wide Board of
College Councils. Student Government funds
the FSOAC through student activity fees. The
council serves as a liaison between accounting
students and faculty. At the beginning of the
fall and spring semesters, each accounting class
selects a student to represent them at FSOAC
meetings and functions. All students accepted
to the Fisher School of Accounting are eligible to
be non-voting members of the council; after
attending three consecutive meetings, students
are eligible to vote. Students on the council can
participate on a number of committees. Officers
are elected by the voting members at the end of
each semester to serve the following semester.
The council participates in many activities
throughout the year, including the school's
orientation program, Career Expo, Footnotes
(weekly announcements to accounting classes)
and publication of The Fisherman (the Fisher
School of Accounting newsletter). The council
also is involved with UF Homecoming and
Gator Expo in the fall, and the spring awards
banquet. Finally, the council presents profes-
sional programs to accounting students, often in
cooperation with Beta Alpha Psi or the Florida
Accounting Association. These programs expose
students to accounting in public, private, in-
dustrial and government practices.
National Association of Black Accountants
The National Association of Black Account-
ants, Inc. (NABA) was founded in December,
1969 by nine African-American accountants in
the New York area. The founders decided that
there was a need for a professional organization
of minority accountants. Their goal was to es-
tablish a national organization that dealt forth-
rightly and effectively with the many common
problems faced by the growing number of Afri-
can-American professionals in the world of
accounting.
The mission of NABA is to address profes-
sional needs that enable minorities to maximize
their career potential in the accounting profes-
sion. Since the founding of NABA's first chap-
ter in August, 1970, in New York, the member-
ship has grown to approximately 5,000 members
in over 130 active professional and student
chapters in major urban areas and at universi-
ties across the nation. NABA's membership is
diverse and includes individuals serving in
accounting, auditing, finance, and general man-
agement positions. Experience levels range
from entrepreneurs and senior executives to
staff accountants, providing a unique environ-
ment for both leadership and development.
Student Senate
The Fisher School of Accounting elects one
senator to the Student Senate. The Student
Senate meets weekly to handle various student
concerns and business matters, including the
distribution of student activity fees.

COLLEGES


Center for Accounting Research
The Center for Accounting Research
provides an umbrella for research. The research
component of the center encourages and facili-
tates theoretical and applied research by ac-
counting faculty and students. The center pub-
lishes the Journal of Accounting Literature, spon-
sors research seminars and a biannual confer-
ence, produces a working paper series, and
serves as a research information source for fac-
ulty and students.

Admission to the School
Submitting an Undergraduate Application
The Fisher School of Accounting applies the
same admission standards to students currently
enrolled at the university (natives) and those
seeking entry to the Fisher School from another
academic institution (transfers).
Native students who have selected account-
ing as their major upon entering the university
automatically will be classified as accounting
students. This classification will remain as long
as the student meets the continuation require-
ments described below.
All other natives who want to change their
major to accounting should apply at the Fisher
School Office. Transfer students apply through
the university's Office of Admissions.
Continuation Policies for Native Students
Freshmen and sophomores with an ac-
counting major must comply with the following
to remain in the program:
Students must complete ACG 2021C with a
grade of B by completion of 60 credit hours.
Students are allowed two attempts, includ-
ing drops, to achieve a B grade in ACG
2021C.
Comply with all universal tracking provi-
sions.
Students must maintain a minimum 3.0
overall GPA.*
Upon satisfactory completion of all freshman
and sophomore year requirements, includ-
ing general education, preprofessional,
CLAST, an A.A. degree and a 3.0 minimum
GPA, the student will shift from continua-
tion status to retention status (2.0 GPA re-
quired).
Undergraduate Transfer Applicant Pool
The Fisher School of Accounting uses an ap-
plicant pool for undergraduate admissions. All
applicants who meet minimum standards are
placed into a pool from which the most quali-
fied are selected for admission each term. Be-
cause of this process, most admission decisions
are not made until well after the application
deadline.
It is unlikely that all students who meet the
minimum standards will be admitted. A Fisher
School of Accounting faculty committee is re-
sponsible for admission decisions, which are not
based solely on GPA. Factors such as perform-


ance in any accounting courses completed prior
to application and the overall quality of the
academic record are considered for admission.
Minimum Standards for the Applicant Pool
A student will be considered for admission
to the Fisher School if the following are met:
* Completion of, or in the process of com-
pleting, at least 60 semester hours of course
work at an accredited institution. Students
transferring from a community college must
have their Associate of Arts degree.
* Completion of 19 semester hours of
preprofessional course work. Although a
student will be considered for admission
upon completion of the 12 preprofessional
credit hours described below, all
preprofessional courses are prerequisites for
3000-4000 level courses. Students who have
not completed all 19 hours upon admission
will delay progress toward graduation.
The following preprofessional courses must
be completed at the time of application:
* ACG 2021C, Introduction to Financial Ac-
counting, or equivalent, with a minimum
grade of B.
If a series of courses is completed as
equivalent to ACG 2021C, then a B must be
achieved in each course. Students are al-
lowed a maximum of two attempts, includ-
ing drops, to achieve a B grade in ACG
2021C.
MAC 2233, Survey of Calculus 1, or equiva-
lent.
CLEP credit is not accepted in lieu of the
calculus requirement. Four credits awarded
for the AP examination in calculus will sat-
isfy the MAC 2233 requirement.
Students who have taken calculus at
state institutions in Florida can satisfy MAC
2233 by satisfactory completion of MAC
1311 or 2311.
AND
Two of the following four preprofessional
courses may be in process at the time of ap-
plication, but two courses must have been
completed successfully prior to enrollment.
ECO 2013, Principles of Macroeconomics,
or equivalent.
ECO 2023, Principles of Microeconomics,
or equivalent.
CGS 2531, Introduction to Computer
Software, or equivalent.
STA 2023, Introduction to Statistics 1, or
equivalent.
A 3.0 cumulative GPA calculated on all
attempts of all college-level course work. If
a student has attended the University of
Florida and another institution, the GPA cal-
culation will be based only on the UF course
work.
In the case of a transfer student from the
state of Florida, an Associate of Arts degree
(A.A.) is required before enrolling in the
Fisher School.


* Satisfactory completion of the College Level
Academic Skills Tests (CLAST).
Undergraduate (B.S.Ac.) Admissions Policies
Meeting minimum standards is required for
admission to the applicant pool; it does not
guarantee admission to the Fisher School. Ad-
mission is selective and is subject to enrollment
capacity. Priority in admission will be given to
those applicants whose record indicates the
greatest likelihood for success.
Admission requirements for the Fisher
School are subject to change. Please check the
Fisher School office (267 Stuzin Hall) for the
current standards.
Admission to the university does not guar-
antee admission to the Fisher School. Admis-
sion to the Fisher School does not constitute
admission to the 3/2 program; this requires a
separate application to the Graduate School.
Admission eligibility standards for UF stu-
dents apply equally to transfer students who
received their A.A. degrees from Florida public
community colleges and who have passed all
parts of CLAST.
Community college transfers are cautioned
that ACG 2071 or its equivalent will count to-
ward the B.S.Ac. degree as elective credit; native
students must take another elective. In addi-
tion, professional course work that is required
as part of the third, fourth or fifth year should
only be taken at the University of Florida.
Community college transfer students should
avoid such courses as Business Law, Principles
of Marketing, Principles of Finance, Principles
of Management and accounting courses be-
yond the introductory level.
A maximum of four semester credits may be
allowed for courses taken during the first two
years that are available only as third and fourth-
year professional courses in the Warrington
College of Business Administration. Any credit
granted for such work will be granted only in
the form of elective credit. In no case may such
courses be in accounting.
In the case where a student wishes to waive
a core course and substitute a community col-
lege course, waivers may be granted on an indi-
vidual basis, but the student will be required to
take another course in the area waived. The
department will identify the substitute course.
Community college students should note that
a minimum of 60 hours of course work for the
B.S.Ac. degree must be at the 3000 or above
course level.
These same standards apply equally to
transfer students from four-year colleges within
the Florida state university system who have
earned the A.A. degree and passed all parts of
CLAST. Prospective students from other than
SUS institutions or applicants who have not
completed the A.A. and CLAST are not guar-
anteed admission to the Fisher School. These
students will be considered on a case-by-case
basis and will be admitted selectively when
space permits. Prospective accounting students
attending other four-year institutions should






ACCOUNTING


follow a course of study similar to the general
education and preprofessional requirements
taken by freshmen and sophomores at UF.
Courses that are a part of the third, fourth and
fifth-year requirements should be avoided prior
to entering UF.
The Office of the University Registrar deter-
mines the transferability of credit earned at
other institutions. Credit for vocational or tech-
nical courses, repeats of previous courses taken
or credits from non-accredited institutions will
not transfer to UF for degree credit.
Scholarships
Information about general financial aid can
be obtained from the Office for Student Finan-
cial Affairs, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida 32611-4025. Students who wish to be
considered for scholarships awarded to fifth-
year accounting students should obtain appli-
cation forms from the Fisher School of Ac-
counting and should complete them early in the
spring term of their fourth year.

Fisher School Requirements
Academic Advising
The associate director and undergraduate
advisers are available for counseling on an ap-
pointment basis at the school's office (267 Stuzin
Hall). All students are advised to seek guidance
well in advance of registration periods.
Universal Tracking
It is the student's responsibility to be aware
of academic requirements. Universal tracking
audits are mailed each semester; they list all of
the requirements for a particular program and
indicate whether the student has met each re-
quirement. Students should pay close attention
to these audits and should seek assistance from
their adviser. Failure to do so may delay
graduation.
Submitting a Course Substitution
Students transferring into the Fisher School
from other institutions will need to complete
substitution forms for all of their
preprofessional or degree requirements. These
forms may be obtained from the Fisher School
office and should be completed as soon as the
student is on campus. Failure to do so may
result in the student being dropped from a
subsequent course. Students who have been
admitted to the Fisher School will have their
substitution forms returned to the school's office
and kept in the student's folder. The substitu-
tion process is as follows:
* Complete the blue course substitution form
and attach it to a photocopy of the course
description from the college where the
course was taken. Often a course syllabus
will assist in the approval process.
* The student must then take the completed
forms for approval to the UF department
that offers the course.


The student must then return the signed
forms for approval to the Fisher School.
The substitution is not approved until
signed by the Fisher School.
Accounting and Business Core Courses Taken
at Other Institutions
Once a student has been admitted to the
Fisher School of Accounting, the student may
not take any preprofessional, accounting or
business core course work at any other institu-
tion.
Students who have taken 3000-4000 level
courses at accredited universities prior to en-
tering the Fisher School should submit course
substitution forms. A maximum of one 3000-
4000 level approved business core course may
count toward the student's undergraduate de-
gree.
Accounting course work taken elsewhere
generally is not substitutable for the accounting
courses required for the B.S.Ac. degree.
Satisfactory-Unsatisfactory Grade Option
An undergraduate student may request the
S-U Option only for elective courses. Courses
taken to satisfy preparatory course or degree
requirements for the M.Acc. program may not
be taken S-U.
Unsatisfactory Performance
Students who do not make satisfactory aca-
demic progress will be dropped from the ac-
counting program. In addition to university
regulations concerning unsatisfactory perform-
ance, the school will exclude students from
further registration for the following reasons:
Freshmen and Sophomores:
The student does not comply with the
minimum universal tracking requirements.
* The student has not earned a B grade in
ACG2021C after two attempts (including
withdrawal).
* The student's cumulative grade point aver-
age falls below 3.0 and remains there after
one subsequent term of enrollment.
* The student withdraws from the university
three times while classified as an AC stu-
dent.
Juniors and Seniors:
The student earns two grades below C in ac-
counting courses numbered above 3000 regard-
less of whether the student was in the Fisher
School at the time they earned those grades.
* The student's accounting grade point aver-
age, calculated on all attempts of all re-
quired accounting courses numbered 3000
and above falls below 2.0 and remains there
after one term of enrollment.
* The student's cumulative grade point aver-
age falls below 2.0 and remains there after
one subsequent term of enrollment.


The student withdraws from the university
three times after admission to the Fisher
School of Accounting.
The student fails to register for a required
3000-4000 level accounting course for two
consecutive semesters of enrollment.
For purposes of the above policies, the fol-
lowing rules apply to the definition of a term:
Any term for which a student registers for
courses at the university counts as a term of
enrollment, even if the student subsequently
withdraws from the term (after drop/add).
Summer registration is viewed as registra-
tion for one term (e.g., whether a student
registers for Summer A alone or a combina-
tion of Summer A, B or C, the student is con-
sidered registered for one term).
Students not in the Fisher School who register
for 3000-4000 level accounting courses must
comply with the two preceding items or they
will be denied further registration in account-
ing courses.
Undergraduate Drop Policies
Freshman and sophomore students may
drop two courses. Unused drops do not transfer
to junior and senior standing. Junior and senior
students are permitted to drop two courses.
The drop policy applies to all drops at the
university, regardless of whether the student
was in the Fisher School at the time of the drop.
The policy is intended to cover legitimate
causes. There are no free drops and students
should exercise judgment when dropping
courses.
All drops become part of the student's offi-
cial record and will be recorded on the student's
transcript ("W").
Withdrawal in any term (fall, spring or
summer) is counted as one drop for the purpose
of applying the two-drop policy.
The associate director as advised by the Pro-
fessional Program Committee must act upon all
other drop requests. The committee is very strict
when considering such requests and will not
approve drops for reasons that are not beyond
the student's control.
This policy applies to drop requests made
after drop/add and prior to the period gov-
erned by the University Senate Committee on
Student Petitions.
Drop Request Prior to the Deadline
Students pick up a pink drop form and a
bubble sheet from the Fisher School.
* The pink drop form must be completed and
signed by the course instructor.
* The department offering the course must
initial or stamp the completed bubble sheet.
* Students return the forms to the Fisher
School for approval.
* The drop is not official until the student
processes the bubble sheet at the Office of
the University Registrar-before the drop
deadline.






COLLEGES


Drop Request After the Deadline
After the last day to drop by college petition
(as published each semester in the Schedule of
Courses), all petitions must be presented to the
University Senate Committee on Student Peti-
tions. Such petitions should be presented to the
Office of the University Registrar in 222 Criser
Hall for referral to that committee.
Correspondence Courses and Registration at
Other Institutions
Courses may not be taken by correspon-
dence. Required courses (in preprofessional,
accounting and supporting fields) may not be
taken outside the university. No exceptions are
permitted.
Elective and general education courses may
be taken outside the university only if:
* The student will have more than 30 hours
left to graduate from the Fisher School upon
completion of such courses.
The student obtains the advance approval of
the associate director.
Computer Requirement
Refer to the university's home page at
www.ufl.edu or to the CIRCA home page at

Graduation Requirements
Application for Graduation
Each student should plan to see an adviser
in the semester prir to the term of planned
graduation to confirm that all degree require-
ments will be met pending successful comple-
tion of the term. Graduation checks will not be
done during the week of drop/add.
It is the student's responsibility to apply for
graduation at the Office of the University Reg-
istrar. The deadline for submitting applications
is published in the Schedule of Courses. Failure
to submit a timely application may prevent
graduation.
Requirements for Degree Certification
To graduate with a B.S.Ac. degree, a student
must have satisfactorily completed 120 semester
hours of prescribed course work, and
The last 30 hours of course work must have
been completed in residence at the Fisher
School with an AC classification.
The student must have completed a mini-
mum of 16 semester credit hours of 3000-
5000 level accounting courses at the Fisher
School.
The waiving of any required course does not
reduce the hours required for graduation.
Graduation credits will not be given for
repeated courses.



In addition, the degree candidate must have
* A minimum of 2.0 GPA on all UF course
work
* A minimum 2.0 GPA on all courses taken in
excess of 60 hours.
* A minimum 2.0 GPA on all attempts of all
required accounting courses numbered 3000
and above.
For purposes of computing the GPAs referenced
above, the following apply:
* If a course is repeated after an initial grade
of C or better was earned in the course (e.g.,
to achieve the B requirement for ACG
2021C), the repeat grade and hours will not
be computed in the UF grade point average.
Except for the above, all attempts of all
courses are included in the computation.
This means that a repeated course is in-
cluded for each time a grade is recorded.
Dean's List and Honors
For the fall and spring semesters, students
who have earned a 3.5 or better grade point
average, based on a minimum of 14 semester
hours taken for letter grades, are eligible for the
Dean's List. Students receive a certificate to
recognize their achievement. S-U option hours
are not counted toward the 14 hours required.
Outstanding performance is recognized by
the designation of honors, high honors and
highest honors. Students must earn a 3.2 grade
point average (honors), a 3.6 grade point aver-
age (high honors), and a 3.8 grade point average
(highest honors) on all junior and senior level
course work and a 3.2, 3.6 or 3.8 in all major
course work. Only course work taken at UF will
be included in these computations.
Junior and senior level course work shall
include all course work in excess of 60 se-
mester hours.
Major course work shall include the five
required undergraduate accounting courses.
To be awarded high or highest honors, the
student must submit a thesis to the Fisher
School no later than the deadline. The thesis
must be accompanied by an abstract. These are
available at the Fisher School of Accounting.
Postbaccalaureate students are not eligible to
receive honors recognition.
Registering for and completing ACG 4970,

productive citizenship, and life-long learning in
the areas of food, agriculture, natural resources
and life sciences as they relate to human re-
sources, the environment, and individual com-
munities.
Students are taught by a distinguished fac-
ulty who have been educated at some of the best
universities in the world and are recognized
nationally and internationally for their teaching,
research, and extension expertise. Eight eminent
scholars, eight graduate research professors, and
three distinguished service professors are in-
cluded among the college faculty. Additional
information about the College of Agricultural
and Life Sciences and School of Forest Re-
sources and Conservation can be obtained on
the college's home page.

Degree Programs
Majors
The majors offered by the College of Agri-
cultural and Life Sciences are listed on the right.
Several of them have specializations and/or
options. Some of the majors are coordinated by
more than one department and two are interdis-

In addition to the minors that are offered
under particular majors, the College of Agri-
cultural and Life Sciences offers two interdisci-
plinary minors.
Agricultural and Natural Resources Ethics
and Policy Minor is offered by the Colleges of
Agricultural and Life Sciences and Liberal Arts
and Sciences.' It is available for students who
wish to augment technical education in the
agricultural and resource-related disciplines
with selected liberal arts and science courses
and policy-related courses in agriculture and
natural resources. It also augments a business,
humanities, journalism or social sciences educa-
tion with selected courses in this college that
pertain to unique agricultural and natural re-
sources issues and problems. This minor serves
as additional preparation for careers in educa-
tion, business, law or politics. Students should
see the undergraduate coordinator in food and
resource economics.
Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology Mi-
nor is an interdisciplinary minor co-sponsored
and coordinated by the departments of Agron-
omy, Environmental Horticulture, Horticultural
Sciences, Plant Pathology and Microbiology and
Cell Science. It is particularly appropriate for
students majoring in horticultural science, mi-
crobiology and cell science and plant science,
although it is available to other majors. This
minor offers academic training and hands-on
experience in current laboratory techniques.
Students can prepare for graduate school or
laboratory positions in plant biotechnology.
Pre-professional Programs
Several majors in this college have speciali-
zations or options that facilitate the completion
of pre-professional requirements for admission
to the Colleges of Dentistry, Law, Medicine,
Pharmacy and Veterinary Medicine. There are
specializations in agricultural operations man-
agement, animal sciences, entomology and ne-
matology, food science and human nutrition,
microbiology and cell science, and wildlife ecol-
ogy and conservation that prepare students for
admission to programs in medicine, dentistry or
veterinary medicine. Food science and human
nutrition as well as microbiology and cell sci-
ence have early admission programs to the Col-
lege of Dentistry. Students preparing for law
careers may elect any major in the college. Pre-
veterinary medicine requirements are listed in
the section on majors.
Dental Early Admission Program: Through
a cooperative agreement between the College of


Dentistry (COD) and the College of Agricultural
and Life Sciences (CALS), qualified students
may be admitted to the COD when they first
enter college as freshmen. The Dental Early
Admission Program helps highly motivated
students complete a bachelor's degree and
D.M.D. in a shorter time period than traditional
programs. Early admission program partici-
pants major in microbiology and cell science or
food science and human nutrition's nutritional
sciences specialization. Both majors provide the
science foundation necessary for dental school.
This seven-year combined B.S./D.M.D. pro-
gram provides dual acceptance into both col-
leges. Approved students will enroll three years
in the bachelor's program and four years in the
D.M.D. program. To be considered for dual
acceptance, students must be admitted to the
university, have an overall high school grade
point average of 3.4 as computed by the College
of Dentistry, have a total SAT score of at least
1260 (or ACT of 28 or EACT of 29), file a formal
application with the College of Dentistry and be
approved by the Dentistry Admission Commit-
tee following a formal interview.
Final acceptance into the College of Den-
tistry is contingent upon progression through
the prescribed curriculum with no less than a
3.4 overall grade point average and a 3.2 science
grade point average, completion of the College
of Dentistry application process and completion
of the Dental Admission Test with a score of 15
or higher on each section.
Applicants should apply to the University of
Florida prior to February 1 for entrance in the
fall semester. Students also may be admitted to
the university in the spring and summer se-
mesters. Interested students should write to the
Director of High School and Community Col-
lege Relations, Office of the Assistant Dean,
College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, Box
110270 (2002 McCarty Hall), Gainesville, FL
32611-0270, to initiate the Dental School Early
Admission process. Please provide the follow-
ing information: name, mailing address, tele-
phone number, social security number, high
school, high school graduation date, class rank,
SAT/ACT/EACT scoress, grade point average
and official high school transcript.
Pharmacy Combined Degree Program:
Through a cooperative agreement between the
College of Pharmacy and the College of Agri-
cultural and Life Sciences, qualified students
may participate in the Combined Degree Phar-
macy Program. The program helps qualified
students complete a bachelor's degree and the
Doctor of Pharmacy degree in a shorter period
than traditional programs. Participants major in
nutritional sciences and take at least 99 hours in
three years.
Students should apply to the College of
Pharmacy during the junior year for acceptance
into the college in the senior year. Course work
in the first professional year of the pharmacy
program is applied to the last year of the stu-
dent's baccalaureate degree in the College of
Agricultural and Life Sciences. Upon successful


completion of the first year in the College of
Pharmacy, the Bachelor of Science is awarded.
Qualifications for acceptance in the College
of Pharmacy are rigorous and competitive. Stu-
dents should see the undergraduate coordina-
tors in the Department of Food and Science and
Human Nutrition as well as the Office for Stu-
dent Affairs in the College of Pharmacy
Combined Bachelor of Science and Master of
Science Degree Programs:
The college currently has three combined
degree programs: plant pathology, agricultural
operations management, and animal sciences.
These programs allow talented students to
complete both a bachelor's degree and a mas-
ter's degree in five years. Other programs cur-
rently are under development.
Satellite Campuses and Degree Programs:
Recognizing the specialized needs of nontradi-
tional students, the university established
Bachelor of Science degree programs at its Fort
Lauderdale (FLREC), Milton (WFREC) and Ft.
Pierce (IRREC) Research and Education Centers.
The University of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) offers off-
campus degree programs in nursery manage-
ment and landscape horticulture, turfgrass
science, or entomology at Fort Lauderdale;
nursery management and landscape horticul-
ture, turfgrass science or natural resource con-
servation at Milton; and horticultural sciences
and agribusiness management (food and re-
source economics) at Ft. Pierce. Students at-
tending classes at these satellite campuses first
earn an Associate of Arts degree from a Florida
public community college or other accredited
academic institution, then apply for admission
to the university. Once accepted, students can
pursue a Bachelor of Science without moving to
Gainesville. UF faculty teach and advise stu-
dents. Upon completion of the requirements for
the degree, UF confers the degree.
Satellite campus students are eligible for UF
and College of Agricultural and Life Sciences
scholarships. Courses are also available to the
general public as continuing education courses.
For additional information about these satellite
campuses, please consult the following web
sites:

Requirements for Admission
Academic Advising
Academic advising within the college is pro-
vided by college faculty. Each major has an
undergraduate coordinator and undergraduate
advisers. Students interested in a major in the
college should see the undergraduate coordi-
nator or an adviser in the major. A list of under-
graduate coordinators and advisers is available
in 2002 McCarty Hall. It is college policy that
each student discusses his/her academic plans
with an adviser in the major before each regis-






COLLEGES


tration to receive academic and career counsel-
ing advice.
Freshman Students
Any student classified as a first semester
freshman at the university will be admitted to
the college when they declare a major within the
B.S. or B.S.F.R.C. degree programs. At that time,
their college classification will become AG or
FY. These students will maintain the AG or FY
classification as long as they continue to meet or
exceed the universal tracking criteria for the
major. Students who fall below the minimum
progression standards will not be allowed to
continue in the major. These students must meet
with an academic adviser within the college to
determine an alternative major. Freshman AG &
FY students should take the CLAST in the sec-
ond semester.
Students Other Than Freshmen
All UF students other than first semester
freshmen must formally apply to a major in the
college. Students will be admitted to the major if
they meet or exceed the universal tracking crite-
ria published in the catalog. Performance in and
completion of courses in math, biology, chem-
istry and physics in the first four semesters are
the primary criteria for determining admission
to a major. Requirements for admission vary
depending on the major. Therefore, it is im-
portant to complete all requirements.
Computer Requirement

over $400,000 annually for student scholarships.
Applications for college scholarships are avail-
able in 2002 McCarty Hall from October 15 to
January 10. College scholarships and letters of
recommendation are due in 2001 McCarty on or


before January 15 each year. Scholarships also
are available through each academic unit. For
more information, contact the undergraduate
coordinator for the major.
IFAS Ambassadors
IFAS Ambassadors are selected through a
competitive process and commit two semesters
to promote awareness of academic programs in
food, agriculture, and natural resources among
students in Florida. In addition to supporting
food, agriculture, and natural resources, the
ambassadors participate in a program designed
to enhance their leadership ability. As the offi-
cial student representatives of IFAS, the ambas-
sadors work with students, civic groups, and
the food, agricultural and natural resource in-
dustries across the state and at national confer-
ences. Applications for the fall program are
accepted the previous spring semester.
Gamma Sigma Delta Honor Society
Gamma Sigma Delta honor society recog-
nizes the academic achievements and accom-
plishments of students, faculty, and alumni
whose work has contributed to food, agricul-
ture, natural resources and life sciences. Its pur-
pose is to promote high achievement and to
recognize individuals who excel. Juniors and
seniors who rank in the upper 15 percent of
their class scholastically and show promise of
leadership may be nominated for membership.
The Fraternity of Alpha Zeta
Alpha Zeta is a professional service and
honorary agricultural society. Members are
selected from among undergraduate and gradu-
ate students of high scholarship on the basis of
character, leadership, and personality. Alpha
Zeta fosters high standards of scholarship, char-
acter, leadership, and fellowship among its
members, and furthers the development of food,
agriculture, natural resources, and life sciences.

Universal Tracking and Academic
Progression Standards
All applicants must have completed two se-
quential courses of foreign language in secon-
dary school or 8-10 semester hours at the post-
secondary level, or document an equivalent
level of proficiency.
Because of the diversity among degree pro-
grams offered by the college, the specific re-
quirements for each major are listed separately
on the following pages. Students should contact
the undergraduate adviser for their major once
they are admitted to the college. They should
complete the course requirements for the major
in the semester designated in the catalog and on
the universal tracking audit. The student's un-
dergraduate adviser will make any adjustments.
Each student must complete the math, chemis-
try, biology and physics courses as outlined in
the semester-by-semester listings for the first
four semesters of study.
Juniors and seniors should have completed
all courses listed for the first four semesters of


their curriculum. Any student not completing
these should do so in the first semester of the
junior year.
The college policy regarding registration is
that each student must consult his/her faculty
adviser before each registration to ensure the
appropriate courses in the appropriate se-
quence. The college monitors this policy by
examining each student's schedule after regis-
tration. Students not enrolled in appropriate
courses will not be allowed to register the fol-
lowing term.
Transfer Students
To be eligible for admission to the college, a
transfer student from a Florida public commu-
nity college must have an Associate of Arts
degree and must satisfy the minimum admis-
sion requirements set forth for the intended
major. Community college students should
consult an academic adviser to ensure comple-
tion of the courses that will satisfy the admis-
sion requirements for their intended majors
within the college. Transfer students from other
universities and non-Florida public community
colleges should complete the first two years'
requirements for the major prior to transferring
to the university and to this college. Students
can also view transfer requirements for each
major at www.isis.ufl.edu.
Transfer students should avoid specialized
1000-2000 level courses related to their major.
These courses can be taken to better advantage
after the student has acquired the appropriate
background in general education, basic science,
and mathematics.
Postbaccalaureate Students
A student who has received a baccalaureate
degree may be admitted under certain circum-
stances as a postbaccalaureate student (6AG).
Postbaccalaureate applicants should meet the
admission requirements listed for the first four
semesters with particular emphasis on success-
ful completion of all math, biology, chemistry
and physics courses for the intended major.
Students may enroll as 6AG to:
Receive a second baccalaureate degree
Satisfy requirements for teacher certification
Meet specific requirements for admission to
graduate or professional school.
Admission requirements for postbaccalaure-
ate students are the same as for transfer stu-
dents. Students must declare a major and meet
with an adviser in that major to plan and ap-
prove a program of study. In addition, postbac-
calaureate students must comply with college
and university rules and regulations and meet
all deadlines in the undergraduate catalog.

College Regulations and
Requirements
Student Responsibility
Students are expected to assume full respon-
sibility for registering for the proper courses, for
fulfilling all requirements for the degree, and for






AGRICULTURAL AND LIFE SCIENCES


completing all courses. Each semester, the stu-
dent must consult an adviser to plan and get
approval for the courses in which to enroll.
Normal Loads
The normal course load in the college is 15
credit hours during fall and spring and 12 credit
hours during summer. A student should not
register for more than 17 credit hours unless
approved by an adviser and the dean. Students
may register for fewer than 12 hours, but should
be aware that certain university privileges and
benefits require a minimum enrollment of 12
hours. It is the student's responsibility to verify
the minimum course load for these benefits.
Probation and Dismissal
College Probation: A student whose jun-
ior/senior level grade point average falls below
2.0 is placed on college probation. The assistant
dean for undergraduate academic programs will
notify the student that s/he is on probation and
must bring his/her UF grade point average up
to 2.0 during that semester or s/he must remove
at least three (3) deficit points. As long as a stu-
dent has a deficit record, s/he must continue
removing three deficit points a semester until
the overall UF grade point average is 2.0. Failure
to remove three deficit points a semester will
result in college suspension for one semester.
During college suspension, a student cannot
register as a College of Agricultural and Life
Sciences student. With approval of the student's
adviser and the assistant dean, the student may
completee approved courses at another institu-
ion. If a student does enroll at another institu-
ion, those grades will not reduce the deficit
pointss on his/her UF record. However, they
nust earn a C or better for each course taken at
hat institution. Upon returning to UF, a student
nust remove a minimum of three deficit points
>er semester to continue enrolling.
Drop Policy
Courses may be dropped during the
irop/add period without penalty. Thereafter,
coursess may be dropped only by college petition
n accordance with the deadline. Drops requir-
ng college petition are subject to the following
rules:
Two unrestricted drops after the drop/add
period will be permitted for a student classi-
fied as 1AG/FY and 2AG/FY. Students clas-
sified as 3AG/FY, 4AG/FY, 6AG/FY and
OAG/FY are allowed one unrestricted drop.
An adviser must approve all drops before
the college will process them.
After the college deadline, students must
petition the dean.
Students withdrawing from UF (dropping
their full course load) must contact the Dean
of Students Office in 202 Peabody Hall.,
Withdrawal Policy
If a College of Agricultural and Life Sciences
student withdraws from UF a second time, that
student will be placed on college probation. A
hird withdrawal violates the probation and the


student cannot register again as a student in the
college.
Practical Work Experience/Internships
By prior arrangement with an adviser, a stu-
dent may, with supervision, receive credit for
practical work experience relevant to the major.
Credit is earned at the rate of one credit per
month of full-time work and may not exceed
three credits in any combination of experiences.
A written report must be submitted before a
grade (S-U) will be issued. Academic units
offering this option list the course number 4941.
Guidelines establishing minimum criteria for
credit eligibility and performance are available
from the undergraduate coordinator for the
major.

Special Certificates
Environmental Studies: A program for a
.specialization (with certificate) in environmental
studies provides a broad knowledge of the envi-
ronment, especially in the interrelationships
between human activities and environmental
quality. With this specialization and a major in
the college, the student can apply knowledge in
their major to solving environmental problems.
The environmental studies specialization in-
cludes environmental courses in three basic
groups: biological sciences, physical sciences,
and social sciences. At least one course from
each group is required. A minimum of 14 se-
mester hours' credit is required for the certifi-
cate; three hours outside the college also is re-
quired.
The student and academic adviser determine
courses for the specialization from an approved
list. These requirements generally can be met
through a wise choice of electives.
Computer Sciences: A program for speciali-
zation (with certificate) in computer sciences is
available for students to enhance their College
of Agricultural and Life Sciences degree pro-,
gram with a coordinated set of computer science
courses. Any student in this college can pursue
this certificate.
The student must complete 13 credits in spe-
cific courses offered by the Department of Com-
puter and Information Sciences. Each candidate
must complete CIS 3020, COP 3530, and CDA
3101. In addition, at least one of the following
courses must be completed: CEN 3031, COT
4420, COP 4720, CEN 3031, or COP 4620. This
sequence requires a minimum of three semes-
ters beyond completion of calculus.

Graduation Requirements
A Bachelor of Science degree requires at least
120 credits. In addition, students must have at
least a 2.0 grade point average both in their
junior and senior-level work and at the univer-
sity. Finally, students must complete the general
education and major requirements in effect at
the time of their initial enrollment at UF.
Seniors must file an application for degree in
the Office of the University Registrar early in the


semester in which they expect to graduate. The
official calendar lists the deadline. Seniors must
request a degree audit from the dean's office at
the beginning of their senior year.
Residence Requirements
The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences
and the School of Forest Resources and Conser-
vation require each student to complete 60 se-
mester hours or more of 3000-level or above
course work at the university to earn a baccalau-
reate degree. With approval of the dean, some
course work may be taken at an accredited four-
year institution of higher learning offering bac-
calaureate degrees. The last 30 semester.hours to
be applied toward a degree must be completed
in residence in the college.
The last 30 semester hours applied toward
the degree must be completed in residence in
the college. In special cases, the dean's office can
waive this requirement. Students may complete
six semester hours by correspondence among
the 30 semester credits of residence work re-
quired for the baccalaureate degree, but each
course must be approved in advance by the
undergraduate coordinator for the major and
the college dean. The college will not accept
correspondence credit unless a student has a
junior/senior level 2.0 or higher GPA in all
work attempted in residence.
Honors
Dean's List: A student who carries 15 hours
per semester (or 12.in summer) with a grade
point average of 3.3 or better and no grade less
than C in any course will have his/her name
placed on the Dean's List for that semester.
College Honors Program: The college hon-
ors program is for students who have completed
60 credit hours or more and have a 3.5 overall
GPA or higher. This program encourages high-
achieving students to strengthen their education
and to market themselves as students who.have
gone beyond the regular requirements of the
major.
The honors program is designed to build
upon existing courses in the required curricu-
lum. Courses on the transcript are identified
with an honors designation. Students success-
fully completing the program are designated as
Honors Scholars.
All participants must complete the Honors
Colloquium, AGG 4921, a college-wide course
that satisfies the writing component currently
required by the college (AEE 3033, ENC 2210,
ENC 3250, ENC 3310, ENC 3312 or MMC 2100).
The Honors Colloquium is offered every se-
mester.
In addition, two courses approved in the
student's major must carry an honors designa-
tion. These courses may be existing honors
courses or they may be regular courses coupled
with an honors contract. With the approval of
the honors program coordinator, graduate level
courses also may qualify as honors courses.
Students in the program who have the nec-
essary grade point average and a desire to






COLLEGES


graduate with high or highest honors must
complete a research project or creative work.
Honors projects encompass teaching, research,
and extension activities and can include any
creative activity that has an objective and an
expected outcome.
Students who are not in the honors program
still can graduate with high or highest honors as
outlined under the Graduating with Honors
section below. For additional information, con-
tact the honors program coordinator or view the
web page at www.acprog.ifas.ufl.edu/-honors/
Graduating with Honors: To graduate with
honors, a student must have a UF grade point
average of 3.5 or above on all courses taken at
the university after earning 60 credits.
To graduate with high or highest honors, the
grade point average required is 3.75 and 3.85,
respectively. In addition, each academic unit
requires completion of an approved research
project or creative work. Students seeking high
or highest honors should consult their adviser
and the dean's office for specific requirements.
Postbaccalaureate students are not eligible for
honors.

Programs of Study
The specific requirements for each major are
listed below. Courses that satisfy general edu-
cation requirements have been listed in the
appropriate category. In some cases, the listed
courses are not sufficient to complete the gen-
eral education requirement and the student
must take another course. The courses listed
represent the most expedient way to fulfill
graduation requirements. However, the student
may satisfy the requirements with alternative
course sequences.
Students may take the CHM 2040-2041
chemistry sequence or an honors chemistry
course in lieu of CHM 2045. For the calculus
requirement, students may take either MAC
1147, Pre-Calculus, or MAC 1140 and MAC 1114
before enrolling in calculus or they may take a
higher-level calculus course.
The college requires all students to complete
an oral and written communication requirement
above the general requirement. In majors where
an equivalency is permitted, students should
see their advisers for approved alternative
courses. When majors list specific courses, stu-
dents must select from those courses.
Critical Tracking Criteria
The courses in bold in the semester plans
identify the critical tracking criteria for the ma-
jor. These courses determine whether or not
students are on or off track. All critical tracking
courses must be completed by the end of the
first four semesters.
Students who do not complete the appropri-
ate number of tracking courses each semester
will have a hold placed on their record pre-
venting advance registration until they have
met with an adviser and have agreed to enroll in
appropriate tracking courses the following se-
mester.


Agricultural and Biological
Engineering
www.agen.ufl.edu
The agricultural and biological engineering
curriculum is offered cooperatively by the col-
leges of Agriculture and Engineering.
Students in this major receive basic training
in engineering and agriculture to solve the spe-
cialized engineering problems of agricultural
production and processing systems and the
management and conservation of agricultural
land and water resources.
Since engineering problems in agriculture
relate to biological production and processing of
biological products, training in agriculture, and
biology courses are required.
Students will register in the College of Engi-
neering and will receive the Bachelor of Science
in Engineering (Agricultural and Biological
Engineering). Refer to that college for the cur-
riculum.

Agricultural Education and
Communication
www.ifas.ufl.edu/~aecweb/
This major prepares students for careers in
agricultural education, agricultural communi-
cation, and leadership as well as training posi-
tions in agricultural, extension, community, and
government agencies. Three specializations are
offered: teaching, agricultural communication,
and agricultural leadership education. Each
requires a common core of courses in technical
agriculture and pre-professional education.
Department advisers will help students select
electives.
AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION
The education specialization provides the
basic courses for agricultural education teacher
certification in Florida. The graduate must apply
to the Florida Department of Education for
certification and a full-time Florida teaching
certificate. Applicants must pass the Florida
Teacher Certification Examination, have a 2.5
GPA on all technical agriculture course work
and score 20 on the ACT or 960 on the SAT.

Agricultural Operations
Management
www.agen.ufl.edu
The AOM program incorporates today's
emerging technology with business principles to
improve agricultural production, processing,
manufacturing, technical sales, food safety,
worker safety, and the environment.
Technical courses provide experience in con-
struction, structures, power systems, food proc-
essing, computer technology, machinery, elec-
tric circuits and controls, environmental quality,
safety, irrigation, water control, and agricultural
systems management. Students also receive
training in economics, accounting, business,
finance, salesmanship, business management,
technical writing, and public speaking. Electives
allow students to select courses providing
greater expertise in their specific areas.
Five specializations are available: production
management, manufacturing and process man-
agement, technical sales and product support,
biological systems management, and environ-
mental systems management. Consult a de-
partment adviser for guidance.
Combined B.S. and M. S. Program
The department offers a combined B.S. and
M.S. degree program. Qualified students earn
both a bachelor's and a master's degree with a
savings of one semester. They can begin their

Agronomy (see Plant Science)
The Department of Agronomy administers
the undergraduate plant science major in the
agronomy specialization. Students interested in
this specialization should contact the depart-
ment early in their academic careers.

Animal Sciences
www.animal.ufl.edu
The Animal Sciences major offers two spe-
cializations: Animal Biology and Animal In-
dustry. There are six options in the animal in-
dustry specialization: beef cattle, dairy, equine,
poultry, swine, as well as safety and processing
of meat and poultry.
Potential careers for animal sciences majors
include various aspects of livestock production
(beef cattle, dairy cattle, swine, poultry and
horses), livestock processing and utilization
(meat, milk and eggs, performance and recrea-
tion), allied service industries (feed, health care,
genetics, equipment, supplies, marketing, pro-
motion, finance and education) and preparation
for postbaccalaureate education in graduate
school or the College of Veterinary Medicine.
Students should meet with the undergraduate
coordinator in animal sciences to select the ap-
propriate specialization/option and academic
adviser.
Critical Tracking Criteria
Critical tracking courses are bolded. Com-
plete the bolded courses in the semester indi-
cated to stay on track for this major.

ANIMAL BIOLOGY
This specialization is designed for students
who want to be veterinarians working with
species other than livestock or livestock veteri-
narians with a strong basic science orientation in
their undergraduate program. It also is excellent
preparation for graduate programs in basic
animal research. Students select courses in the
animal sciences, zoology, microbiology, wildlife,
and veterinary science.

ders and nematodes. The Department of Ento-
mology and Nematology offers this major and
participates in the plant protection specializa-
tion of the plant sciences major offered in con-
junction with the Department of Agronomy and
the Department of Plant Pathology. The three
specializations are basic science/pre-
professional, biology education, and urban pest
management. Interested students should contact
the undergraduate adviser. A grade of C or
better is required for all courses in the major.
PRE-PROFESSIONAL AND BASIC
SCIENCES
This specialization offers a strong back-
ground in the basic sciences. A minimum 2.5

Microbiology and Cell Science
http://nersp.nerdc.ufl.edu/~arabian/
The curriculum develops fundamental
knowledge of bacteria, plant and animal cells,
and viruses. It provides a background for
graduate work in microbiology, cell biology or
biochemistry as well as other areas. It also pro-
vides a background for entry into government
and industry research or diagnostic laboratories,
as well as medicine, dentistry, and veterinary
medicine professional programs.
THE MAJOR REQUIRES:
* Course background in biology (BSC 2010,
2010L; BSC 2011, 2011L)
* General chemistry (through CHM 2046,
CHM 2046L)
* Organic chemistry (CHM 2210, 2211, and
2211L)
* Analytical chemistry (CHM 3120, 3120L)
* Physics (PHY 2053, 2053L, 2054, and 2054L)
* Calculus (MAC 2311)
Major core course requirements include
MCB 3020 and MCB 3020L, MCB 4203 or PCB
5235, BCH 4024 or CHM 4207, and MCB 4303 or
PCB 4522 for a total of 15 credits of required
courses and at least 10 credits of additional
junior or senior level department electives to-
taling 25 credits.
Students satisfactorily completing both MCB
4203 and PCB 5235 will have the PCB 5235 util-
ized to fulfill a core requirement and MCB 4203
utilized to fulfill a department elective course
requirement. One advanced lab course is re-
quired as part of the 10 credits of electives.
MCB 4905, MCB 4909, and MCB 4941 may not
be used toward fulfillment of any of these 25
credits.
All prospective majors should minimally
complete the biology, chemistry, and calculus
requirements by the end of the sophomore year
and must attain a cumulative GPA in these
courses of no less than a 2.5 with a grade no
lower than a "C" in order to continue in the
microbiology curriculum. For proper progres-
sion through the curriculum in a timely fashion,


students should fulfill the organic chemistry
sequence prior to the end of the sophomore
year. Organic Chemistry I (CHM 2210) is a
prerequisite for enrollment in Basic Biology of
Microorganisms (MCB 3020/3020L) in the mi-
crobiology and cell science program. A physical
chemistry course may be utilized to fulfill 3
credits of department electives and is a highly
recommended elective course for students an-
ticipating entry into a graduate program.
For advising; a student should go to the de-
partment administrative office to be assigned an
adviser.
Graduating With Honors: To qualify for
graduation with honors, high honors or highest
honors, a student must have a junior/senior
level grade point average of 3.50, 3.75 and 3.85,
respectively. (For purposes of honors, UF jun-
ior/senior level courses are defined as all
courses taken at UF after the student has earned
sixty credits.)
In addition to a GPA requirement, a candi-
date for high or highest honors must obtain
grades of B or better in at least four credits of
MCB 4905 or MCB 4909 and in one of the fol-
lowing courses: PCB 5235, MCB 5303L, MCB
5505, MCB 5458 or PCB 5136L.
A thesis that describes the results of research
must be written in scientific style and submitted
to the faculty research supervisor and the un-
dergraduate coordinator the last week of the
semester. For students who are candidates for
high or highest honors in the college, a copy of
the thesis must be submitted to the college office
in 2002 McCarty Hall. Contact the Dean's Office
for deadline information. The final decision on
the honor distinction is determined by perform-
ance in MCB 4905 or MCB 4909 and an evalua-
tion of the quality of the thesis.
A faculty member in the department or ap-
proved faculty outside the department will
supervise the research. The research will be
microbiology or cell biology in nature.

or CGS 3403.
4 Twenty-one (21) non-STA electives must
be 3000 level or higher. If graduate study is
contemplated, MAA 4226, 4227 and MAS
4107 are recommended; choose other elec-
tives from the physical, biological or agri-
cultural sciences.
5 Choose one course from COT 4105, ESI
4312, MAA 4102, MAA 4211, MAD 4401,
MAS 4105 (if not used in core) and MAS
4107.

4210-4211.
STA 4321-4322 should be completed by the end
of the junior year.
The three-course sequence, MAC 3472-3474
(Honors Calculus 1-3) may be substituted for
MAC 2311-2313.
The student must receive a minimum C
grade within two attempts (including with-
drawals) in every required core course and in
each course counted toward the 12-hour STA
elective requirement. The grades from all at-
tempts of the core requirements will be used to
compute a core GPA that must exceed 2.0. The
student must maintain an overall 2.0 GPA for all
core and elective requirements.
Statistics majors are encouraged to take STA
3032 or STA 2023 early to facilitate tracking into
junior level statistics courses. They may not
take any statistics course at the 3000-level or
below after semester four. Students may not
retake any core or elective courses) in which a
grade of C+ or better has already been earned.
Of the 42 credits that are required for the
bachelor's degree, at least 18 credits must have
been earned with a minimum C grade while the
student was enrolled at the university. At least
12 of the 15 STA core requirements must be
included in this 18-hour requirement.

A minimum 15 hours (5 courses) of 4000-
level statistics courses are required. Of these, no
more than three hours may be transfer credits.
Students must complete STA 4210 and 4211.
Each statistics minor whose major requires the
completion of MAC 2311-13 is required to com-
plete STA 4321-22. Students must complete all
4000-level statistics courses with a grade of C or
higher, take no courses toward the minor S/U
and count no individual study courses toward
the minor.

study of grasses, soils, water and pests affecting
turf with the study of business and manage-
ment. Students select classes from the depart-
ments of Environmental Horticulture, Soil and
Water Science, Entomology and Plant Pathol-
ogy. Career opportunities include work with
golf courses, athletic fields, lawn care compa-
nies, parks, agri-chemical industries, cemeteries,
environmental consulting firms, sod farms, and
government agencies, as well as preparation for
graduate school. Students should consult a
department adviser for guidance and approval
of electives.

College of
Architecture
www.arch.ufl.edu
The College of Architecture provides educa-
tion, research and service for the built and natu-
ral environments of Florida, the nation and the
world. Established as a school in 1925, the col-
lege has grown to be one of the largest design,
planning and construction institutions in the
country. A unique aspect of the college is the
scope of its professional disciplines that include
architecture, building construction, interior
design and landscape architecture. Graduate
programs at both the Masters and Ph.D. level
are available in all five of our academic units.
The college's teaching, research and com-
munity service philosophy recognizes the inter-
dependence of these professional disciplines. A
number of required and elective courses are
open on a space-available basis to all majors
(e.g., ARC 1701, 1702, 2201; BCN 1210, 4012,
4237, 4464, 4471; IND 1020, 2100, 2130; LAA
1920, 2710, 4935; URP 3001, 4000). In addition,
the first one and one-half years of design course
work are common to the three undergraduate
design disciplines (architecture, landscape ar-
chitecture and interior design). Research and
service projects conducted through the research
centers and institutes often entail multidisci-
plinary, cross-campus student input and effort.
The Architecture and Fine Arts Library and
the Visual Resources Center are the largest col-
lections of their kind in the Southeast. They
provide books, government documents, Ameri-
can and foreign periodicals, subject files, mi-
crotext, slides, photographs, reproductions and
other materials. The AFA Library maintains its
own Rare Book Collection for scholarly re-
search. Services include a professional reference
service ready to assist in guidance and informa-
tion searches. Students may use additional re-
sources in the university libraries.
The Departments of Architecture, Landscape
Architecture and the M.E. Rinker Sr. School of
Building Construction each have celebrated
over fifty years of service to the citizens of
Florida.
Students considering application to the Col-
lege of Architecture should anticipate as part of
their budget planning expenditures for comput-
ers, travel, equipment and tools essential to their
education as design, planning or construction
professionals. For further information contact
the appropriate department/school.
Research/Education Centers
The college contributes to community, state,
regional and national efforts to conserve and
improve the quality of the natural and built
environments through these research projects:

prominence that include the Preservation Insti-
tute: Nantucket, the Vicenza Institute of Archi-
tecture: Italy and the Preservation Institute:
Caribbean. The latter program is part of the
college's mission to develop teaching, research
and service programs with institutions in the
Caribbean Basin and Latin America.

General Admission Protocols All Students
To be eligible for admission at the junior
year into the College of Architecture, students
must have completed all requirements for the
A.A. degree, passed the College Level Academic
Skills Test (CLAST) and completed two sequen-
tial foreign language courses in secondary
school or 8-10 credits at the postsecondary level
(or documented an equivalent level of profi-
ciency). Admission at the junior/senior level is
open to applicants who have completed all
general education and preprofessional course
work and qualify for enrollment into third-year
professional course work.
Conditional admission is open to applicants
who have accumulated 60 credits of college-
level course work and met the admissions crite-
ria, yet still need to complete first-year and sec-
ond-year preprofessional courses. Generally,
transfer students with an A.A. degree and
CLAST or students from other universities that
do not offer approved preprofessional programs
or courses required at the University of Florida
are considered for conditional admission into
the junior year. These students may require as
many as four semesters at the university to
complete preprofessional requirements because
of the sequential nature of the courses.
Each department/school may include any or
all of the following criteria for admissions re-
view:
Quality of work completed, overall GPA and
preprofessional GPA.
Achievements in preprofessional courses
and/or courses related to the chosen plan of
study.
Portfolio review or pin-up (design students).
Admission Protocols for Native UF Students
Freshmen at the university are admitted di-
rectly to the College of Architecture. The college
will monitor the progress of all students. Stu-
dents who fall below the critical tracking criteria
for the degree program will have a hold placed
on their records and they must see an adviser in
the college/academic unit before they can ad-
